Collages of paper were the ideal medium for Swabian artists: the material - paper, cardboard, etc. usually cost nothing. Friends, printers, etc. were happy about the removal. Had to be purchased for the work of art only: the base of the collage and the glue.
So why not always arises a work of art from the combination of the material is difficult to explain. How to describe a muse who always and others never even kissed some artists? Find the muse rather diligent erotic or the lazy. Others are called to answer the question. The best is: each finds its explanation when he discovered unhurriedly in the collages by Ursula Dethleffs whose beauty.
Sold collages in Swabia rarely. The Schwabe looks at first glance: the bonded material is not worth much. In addition, many are abstract collages. Therefore, some Swabians are sure that they could themselves also.
If the Allgäu then hear of an art collection from Paris, are among the 35 collages by Ursula Dethleffs, you can comfort them thus: French collectors are apparently more interested in art than to material values.
Among the figures: From the artist Ursula Dethleffs shown 230 collages in our collection Dethleffs (1940-1970 = 30 years). Of these, 134 collages rectangular, 96 collages are round (from 1969).
(Ursula had made collages before her mother Fridel Dethleffs-Edelmann. From her mother 162 collages from the years 1959 to 1978, are exhibited in the gallery Dethleffs.)
