Bernard Schultze (1915-2005) was a painter, graphic artist and object artist and is a main representative of the Informel.
Schultze is considered one of the great German artists of gestural painting of the German post-war modernism. He was represented three times at the documenta in Kassel. In 1952, together with Karl Otto Götz and others, he founded the artists' group Quadriga, the core group of informal painting.
The works of Bernard Schultze show a lively handwriting and reveal many artistic allusions to nature and to its growth processes. Schultze's works can often be described as lyrical-abstract; they are rich in color, detail and show a certain meticulousness.
In addition to Bernard Schultze, representatives of Informel include: Karel Appel, Peter Brünning, K.O. Götz, Hans Hartung and Antoni Tàpies
