Ury, Lesser Birth - Death : 1861-1931 Nationality : German
Ury was much influenced by Millet, Van Gogh and Jozef Israels. Inspired by the life of the German metropolis of Berlin he became a prominent artist in Germany. He also painted Jewish-related themes. Unlike Liebermann, Ury was born into a poor and disunited family and as a result he felt the oppressive weight of poverty throughout his youth. Even when success came, somewhat late in his life, Ury remained a misanthrope and finally died wearing rags, locked up in his studio as a recluse though a considerable fortune in bonds was founds buried beneath the floor. Born in Birnbaum in German Poland, he ran away from his home and set out to become a painter, studying in Dusseldorf, Brussels and Paris. Ury first painted genre pieces in an academic style and then produced landscapes in Volluvet, Belgium, assimilating the influence of the French Impressionists and completing his paintings in his studio after sketches made in the open air. Ury returned to Berlin in 1885 and produced city scenes in the German capital until his death. He notably achieved great technical brilliance with the use of pastels and expressed in his large visionary compositions on biblical and Jewish themes his mystical attachment to the sacred texts and to the chosen people.
