Wise Men Bearing Gifts by Sulamith Wülfing, 1933
Born January 11, 1901 in Elberfeld Germany, Sulamith Wülfing dreamed of angels, fairies, gnomes, and nature spirits. She first began drawing these creatures at the age of four.
In 1932 Sulamith married her husband, Otto Schulze, a professor in an art college. Together, they created the Sulamith Wülfing Verlag (publishing house). During WWII, the Wülfing's house was destroyed in a bombing raid, along with many of her paintings.
When her family became separated during the war she received a false report of her husband's death on the Russian front and fled to France with her only child. Sulamith and Otto were later happily reunited. Wülfing died in 1989 at the age of 88.
