Two sons of Remscheld in Germany

The city Of Remscheld is situated in North Rhine-Westphalia.  It was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War but some of its ancient buildings seemed to escape the firestorm that came with the bombing.

The city has many famous sons, including scientists, writers, athletes, actors and musicians but none more famous than Wilhelm Rontgen (1845-1923) who was a Nobel Prize winner because of his development of the X-ray.  Here is an image of the very fist X-ray taken of his wife’s hand.


Surprisingly, in the list of famous people from that town, the name Lutz Munzfeld does not appear.   Lutz was (or might well still be) an artist born in Remscheld in 1947, living there until 1967 when he left to study art, completing his studies in 1981. He travelled abroad for a while and began to concentrate on the subjects of light and Impressionism.  He has had several successful exhibitions and now lives (I hope) permanently in Cologne.  I know all this because Lutz kindly typed it up and placed it on the back of this next signed print.
