Richard Seewald PortraitRichard Seewald, draughtsman, painter and illustrator, was born in Arnswalde on 4 May 1889. In 1909 Seewald began to study architecture at Munich Polytechnic (now Technical University) but soon turned to painting, in which he was self-taught. After some of the drawings Richard Seewald did while still at secondary school were accepted for the magazine "Die Jugend", he began to draw cartoons for the magazines "Meggendorfer Blätter" (Munich) and "Die Lustigen Blätter" (Berlin) to earn his livelihood.
The Galerie Thannhauser, which regularly introduced the work of young Munich artists, showed a selection of Richard Seewald's prints for his first public appearance. Inspired by the painterly effects that could be achieved with drypoint etching, Richard Seewald did his first oil painting on the Dalmatian island of Rab in 1913.
