This is one of his finest works.
Was born in 1922 and died in 1995 as the Aon of German-French parents.
During those times people were still recovering from world war 1. Despite hardships, Willy showed great optimism.
He was inspired by the great masters in the Dusseldorf area, where the great artists competed against each other.
The Dusseldorf art academy became world famous. Nevertheless, he had a very special view of painting.
Impressionism, which was seen by all as the Ne Plus Ultra, touched him conditionally.
Deeply religious and historical themes interested him.
He painted for the Cathedral of St. Swidbert in Dusseldorf Kaiserswerth, a well known painting named " Comforter of the poor and needy" and " Outlawry of war".
His life's most famous works can be seen in the exhibition.
