Katharina J. Schween

The portrait painter Katharina J. Schween was born in Bamberg on July 26, 1990. After graduating from high school, she studied art history at University College London, specializing in Renaissance and Baroque. Meanwhile, her passion for the art market developed. To deepen her knowledge, she completed the MSc Management at Lund University, Sweden, with distinction. Katharina gained her first work experience at Christie’s in London and in retail in Germany while producing her first series of paintings. In 2021 the admission to the BBK Oberfranken followed. Since then, she has taken part in numerous trade fairs and exhibitions. The same year, Katharina received the „Junge Kunst und neue Wege „scholarship from the Free State of Bavaria.

What inspires me…

What fascinates me most about the art of the Renaissance and the Baroque is the incredible amount of skill and knowledge that goes into every work. Crafting and mixing colors, mastering perspective and proportion, thrive on subsistence while the most ingenious depictions of skin, flesh and bodies have been created. For me, the concept of art naturally includes both the idea and the composition of the picture. But nothing inspires me as much as the craftsmanship and perfection from the brush of humanity, as unique as its likeness.
