Wilhelm Kuhnert was born on 28.08.1865 in Opole, Silesia, as the son of an official. At that time, the industrial revolution in Germany was gaining momentum and Wilhelm Kuhnert was initially to complete a commercial apprenticeship according to his father's wishes. Driven by very different interests, Kuhnert broke off his apprenticeship and went to Berlin at the age of 16, where he kept himself afloat as a hunger artist. With occasional works such as portraits and commercial graphics, he managed to punch through just like that.

With a lot of talent, but without any artistic training, he took part in a competition of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin and was one of the winners, which enabled him to study there. After Kuhnert devoted himself to painting animals in the Berlin Zoo, where his first publications were written, he took 26 years again the thirst for adventure and the studies in the zoo were no longer sufficient. An expedition over Egypt and East Africa allowed the adventurous animal painter and zoologist to draw and paint the wildlife there in the wild. Not surprisingly, therefore, that he is known today as the "Lion Kuhnert". Shortly thereafter Kuhnert's second major expedition took place, which once again led to East Africa, but also via India to Ceylon. And a few years later he accompanied King Friedrich Augustus of Saxony on his hunting trip to Sudan. Wilhelm Kuhnert had his last studio at Kurfürstenstraße 120 in the west of Berlin. Previously, Richard Friese (1854-1918) had worked in it. Among Frieses favorite motifs was the Northern European big game and the wildlife in the northern Arctic Ocean. Together Kuhnert and Friese were the founders and dazzling representatives of realistic animal painting in Germany.

Kuhnert had to look for new fields of work after the Second World War due to the new political conditions, because German East Africa offered him no more travel options. However, the love for animal painting remained. On a trip to Sweden he devoted himself with passion to some moose studies. While oil paintings were produced in large numbers in his studio, the illustrations for popular scientific and zoological works went back.

Wilhelm Kuhnert participated until his death around 1926 at the Great Berlin Art Exhibition as well as many exhibitions in different cities. © Meisterdrucke
