Paul Flora was one of the most important illustrators and cartoonists of the 20th century. Surely everyone knows them - his inky-black ravens, all the birds, cats and centaurs, his Venetian vedutas, the plague doctors portrayed with a thin of thick stroke, Tyroleans, mask wearers, cyclists and skiing pioneers, his burlesque architectural fantasies, the gracefully melancholy landscapes. Flora's works seem to want to whisk us away into distant fictional worlds - and yet at the same time they hold up a mirror in front of us. After a long life full of pleasure in art, Paul Flora died ten years ago on 15 May 2009. The Bernau presentation offers visitors the opportunity of a re-encounter with an illustrator of international renown.
