Fritz Rauh was born in Wuppertal, Germany, in 1920.He enrolled in the Braunschweig Art School in 1938, although his studies were interrupted by WWII. Following the war, he completed his formal training in Braunschweig and met his future wife, Alix; together, they emigrated to the United States in 1954. They settled in Marin County, California, where he spent the remainder of his life.


In 1968, renowned art critic of the San Francisco Chronicle, Alfred Frankenstein said, “Whatever their method, the effect of these works is magnificent. Rauh has mastered acrylic paint to produce an exceptionally rich spectrum. Some of his works abstract the presence of leaves and flowers shimmering wonderfully in warm garden light; others go deeper into the forest, still others invoke the sea. No literalism at any point, mind you, not even any impressionism: it all remains in the abstract framework but it admirably imitates nature as its method of working.”
