Wolo Trutzschler (Germany, 1902-1989) pastel on paper drawing of a terrier, signed to lower right "Wolo" and dated '38(? ). Single matted and framed under glass with sight image measuring approximately 11" x 11". In overall good condition, all measurements are approximate. Born in Berlin, Germany on July 24, 1902 of noble birth, Baron Wolff Erhardt Anton Georg Trutzschler von Falkenstein became known as Wolo due to his little sister's difficulty with his name. He was educated in Switzerland at an agricultural college. From there, he came to the U.S. in 1922 as an exchange student at the University of Wisconsin. In 1927 he moved to Los Angeles and, as a self-taught artist, established a studio on Olvera Street. Wolo then moved to San Francisco where he worked for many years as a caricaturist-columnist for the Chronicle. He wrote and illustrated five children's books, painted murals in the San Francisco Bay area, and was well known as a puppeteer.
Shipping is the responsibility of the purchaser. Upon request, our staff will provide the list of shippers who deliver to destinations within the United States and overseas. Some property that is sold at auction can be subject to laws governing export from the U.S., such as items that include material from some endangered species. Import restrictions from foreign countries are subject to these same governing laws. Granting of licensing for import or export of goods from local authorities is the sole responsibility of the buyer. Denial or delay of licensing will not constitute cancellation or delay in payment for the total purchase price of these lots.
