Full Artist Bio

Gunter H. Korus was born in Berlin, Germany. He studied at the Atelier Kukenthal, The States Academy and The School for Graphic Arts.

Korus moved to the Adirondack Region of New York in 1961, and began painting detailed landscapes of the surrounding countryside. His classic “old world” museum-quality still-lifes demonstrate an unparalleled ability to capture surface textures.

The subtle shades and shadows in an oriental rug, the warm burnishing on a copper tea kettle, the rugged weathering of an old brick, or the grain and patina of fine wood, are portrayed with such a sense of dimension that they approach “touchability”.

With an extremely limited output of work, paintings are in great demand by knowledgeable collectors and investors.

Paintings by Gunter Korus have been exclusive to Tilting at Windmills Gallery for the past forty-six years.

SATSUMA

Price:
Medium: Oil on linen
Size: 36in. x 27 in.

Satsuma ware is a type of Japanese pottery originally from Satsuma Province, southern Kyūshū. Today, it can be divided into two distinct categories: the original plain dark clay early Satsuma made in Satsuma from around 1600, and the elaborately decorated export Satsuma ivory-bodied pieces which began to be produced in the nineteenth century in various Japanese cities. By adapting their gilded polychromatic enamel overglaze designs to appeal to the tastes of western consumers, manufacturers of the latter made Satsuma ware one of the most recognized and profitable export products of the Meiji period.
