Seehaus

1989 GP6. Discovered 1989 Apr. 5 by M. Geffert at La Silla.

Named in memory of the painter Paul A. Seehaus (1891-1919) and the other painters of the "Rheinische Expressionisten". Born in Bonn, Seehaus was from 1910 to 1914 a student of August Macke. In 1913 Macke, Seehaus and other members of the group had an exhibition in Bonn, and this established them as expressionist painters in Germany in their own right - in addition to the existing group of "Die Brücke" and "Der blaue Reiter". In his work Seehaus was always interested in a balance between traditional and modern painting. (M 26425)
