uhlman_exhbFred Uhlman was born in 1901 and qualified as a lawyer. He left Germany in 1933 and went to Paris. ‘There, unable to work as a lawyer and encouraged by his cousin Paul Elsas, who was a painter, and Paul Westheim, a German refugee art historian, who had promoted unknown talents in the Weimar republic, Uhlman started to paint successfully in a naïve and colourful style’ (Burgh House website). This was painted in Paris in 1935.
