* 1860 Berlin
† 1927 Berlin
Paul Vorgang studied at the Berlin academy under Professor Eugen Bracht. By 1886 he was an assistant instructor at the Charlottenburg Academy of Fine Art. Two years later the artist was awarded the Small Gold Medal in Berlin. In 1896 Vorgang began to teach in the landscape painting studio at the academy and was appointed professor. His landscapes reveal his preference for the austere Brandenburg scenery and motifs drawn from the immediate environs of Berlin, such as the Grunewald forest. From 1883 Vorgang showed work at the exhibitions mounted by the Berlin Academy of Fine Art, and from 1893 at the Great Berlin Art Exhibition. He no longer painted after 1924 and died three years later in Berlin. Paintings by the artist hang at the Berlin Nationalgalerie, the City Art Museum, St. Louis, Missouri and other distinguished art museums.
