Hermann Brunner paints detailed and naturalistic paintings of nudes and of mountains, animals, birds and landscapes in delicate watercolour or bold oil at affordable prices, some for under E100.
Hermann was born in Brunico, a walled medieval town in Northern Italy. When his parents became teachers in a village school, the family moved further north and Hermann grew up in the steep vallies at the heart of the Italian Alps. Mountain-climbing with his father from an early age gave him a life-long fascination with the beauties and vagrancies of nature.
Originally training and working as a restorer of artwork and frescoes, Hermann soon found his true vocation as an artist and has worked independantly at his craft ever since.
Working variously in oils, watercolours and pastels, he has exhibited his work across Europe.
While his subjects have included portraits, nude studies, still-life and abstract compositions, his first love has always been the Natural World and he remains best known for his watercolours of mountains, shorelines, countryside and birds.
In 1997, he moved to West Cork in Southern Ireland, attracted by the flexible pace of life, varied landscapes and the transclucent, changeable nature of the light.
He lives in West Cork, with his wife and a demanding retinue of cats, exhibiting his work both locally and in Italy.

Hermann with his prized Cat-Overlord, 3-legged white tornado, Merlin.
Found as a kitten, after a car-accident, Merlin has recovered well, runs and climbs with lightening dexterity and is proving to be a largely tolerant dictator. She does not always demand constant attention and sometimes allows Hermann as much as a whole hour a day to himself for painting and basic nutrition.
