THIS PAINTING IS A GREAT INVESTMENT. Peter Keil was born in Züllichau. His family had to move after the death of his father to West Berlin, where he grew up. Young Keil was fascinated by the books he found in the art section of the local library. There he admired the works of the Expressionists.In the beginning, Keil studied and copied the style of the great master Picasso whom he met in Spain. At the age of 15 in 1957 Keil met the painter Otto Nagel. Who became his first teacher and mentor. Nagel introduced Keil to painting techniques, taught him realistic painting, and how to deal with colors. As a young man, Keil accompanied Nagel on his tours of Berlin's back streets.
They often painted from nature and the young Keil learned to see his neighborhood with the eyes of an artist. Teaching him the painter's craft and introducing him to outdoor painting, Nagel also influenced his motifs as well as his color palette. Later, he studied at Berlin's "Akademie fur Bildende Künste" (Berlin Academy of Fine Arts). Keil also obtained a degree as "Kunstschlosser" (art smith); several metal sculptures by Keil exist from 1959.
In 1961 Keil attended Baselitz's and Schonebeck's public presentation of their "Pandemonium Manifesto" at the "Grossgroschen 35" gallery. He became the darling of art circles, earning him the nickname the'Wild man of Berlin for his passion for art and living. Another important factor in those formative years of Keil's artistic development was his close friendship with the painter Joan Miró. Whom he had met in Majorca.
Spain in the early 1960s. Miro repeatedly invited him to his studio in Palma de Mallorca.
