Fleetwood resident Gigi Gordon invites Westchesterites to take a ‘flight’ to European vistas through the eyes of painter her late father, Alexander Graumann. Born in Bern, Switzerland in 1906 to the son of actor Carl Graumann of the Staatstheater in Munich and his wife, Sofia, an opera singer at the Met, he studied art in Stuttgart, Munich, and Paris, and toured with the Josephine Baker Band in Europe and Egypt. After World War II, Graumann settled in Germany and started a career as fashion designer, but art was always his passion. In the 1960s, he picked up his paint brushes in earnest and travelled throughout Europe, staying in Sylt, an island in Northern Germany, in the fall, and summers in Provence and Brittany France.

“He loved the outdoors; trees and landscapes became his ‘thing,’ impressionism and surrealism became his passions,” says Gordon, who was frequently able to travel with her father. “The tree of life represented his views on surrealism. From there his imagination went wild, giving the trees life, be it animals or people. They all became one with the tree.”

His work was exhibited in Sylt, Hamburg, Baden-Baden, La Baule, Cologne, and Duesseldorf and he often hosted house exhibitions. Gordon is continuing that tradition, hoping to share his work with a wider audience.
