Wolf Gerlach: Picture "Dream under Apple Tree"

The Mainzel Men (the cartoon figures) become alive on the canvas. They are depicted on the so-called CELs. This limited reproduction series of the CELs is offered on the occasion of the 50-year anniversary of their first appearance on the stage in April 2013. The creator of the figures Wolf Gerlach chose them for the production. They are produced as colorful giclée prints on the 308g Hahnemuhlen handmade paper, which are especially valuable thanks to the colors of the original and the outstanding paper quality.

1928-2012, versatile artist, inventor of Little Mainz.

Born in 1928 in Pomerania, Wolf Theodor Gerlach spent his youth on the North Sea island Langeoog. Technology and equipment of the performing arts seems to have aroused the young man's interest. After an apprenticeship as art director, set and costume designer, it came his first commitment in Oldenburg. Followed by Braunschweig and Wiesbaden. At the beginning of the 60s, Gerlach devoted to the advertising film and 1963 for the start of transmission of the ZDF, he invented the Little Mainz.

Gerlach, dissatisfied with all experiments dedicated voice actors to give his characters the appropriate voice, synchronized in the first years. And so as the listening to fairy tale plates, distinctive voice and manner of the actor Hans Paetsch speaking charmed generations of children and their parents since the 60s, then Gerlach spoke with the invented and crowed him "Gud'n Aaamd" in the hearts of viewers. His mischievous, cheeky and brash males will always be with us.

Wolf Gerlach died in November 2012 at the age of 84 years.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.
