Born March 30, 1947 near the banks of Germany's River Ruhr, daughter of the well-known Karopka-Branntier, Eleonore Guinther attended her father as an apprentice in his studio. This may be the reason for the unusually short run of maturity for a Guinther to achieve an unchangeable style. Guinther has become a German landscape artist, extraordinaire.
Many of Eleonore Guinther's canvases are open-air studies of the shores of Yugoslavia and Denmark. At the age of 20, Eleonore Guinther had her official debut in the art business, and dealers and collectors became aware of her famous "boats within a scenery of a Mediterranean harbour", a result of her open-air studies at the shores of Yugoslavia and Denmark.
Yet, Guinther received worldwide fame for her stunning landscape creations. Hue upon hue play off the other, damping, dissolving reciprocally towards tonaity and with exciting distribution of light and shade.
Eleonore Guinther continues to paint today, she is married to the painter Bernd Gagel.
