Otto Prinz was born in Austria in 1906 and died in 1980. He drew without instruction, always alone in his room and also procured the drawing material himself. His delicate pencil drawings on paper consist of hard contrasts and soft transitions. In addition, he also drew with coloured pencils, which he used finely and delicately. His main motifs are ghostly landscapes and people, later also buildings. His works can be found in the Gerhard and Karin Dammann Collection, Switzerland, for instance.
