Walter Jungblut was the son of the highly regarded landscape painter, Johann Jungblut (1860-1912), who is known for his fine extensive landscapes. While his brother Emil Jungblut (1888-1955) studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and produced a range of remarkable sculptures. Yet, despite this, it seems that Walter preferred to work against the grain and paint with gesture and expression - even though this led to very limited exposure during his lifetime.
Walter Jungblut’s story raises more questions than answers as there’s so little information available. He was an enigmatic character with an interesting background.
