About the Author
Sulamith Wulfing was born in 1901 in Wuppertal-Elberfeld, Germany. After finishing her high school education, she attended art academy for four years. And when only twenty-two years old, she had her first exhibition in her hometown of Wuppertal.
In the Second World War she was persecuted by the Nazis and had to flee with her son and mother while her husband fought for Germany. During the war, the family experienced a number of tragic events, before they eventually met again in Christmas 1945. Wulfing has always been convinced that only the spiritual support of Jiddu Krishnamurti, whom she honored as her teacher, prevented her from being transferred to a concentration camp by Hitler's SS.
For Sulamith, the years after the war were filled with intense artistic activity and publishing. She died in March 1989 at the age of 88. She is an internationally acclaimed artist. But more than anything else, her art touches the hearts of countless people throughout the world.
