Lothar Wolleh was a German photographer.
Berlin, Germany 1930 - 1979 London, England.

In 1967, the Boijmans-van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam organized a retrospective exhibition dedicated to the Belgian artist René Magritte. Lothar Wolleh traveled to Brussels several times this year and visited the Magritte family in the run-up to the exhibition.

With his photographs, Lothar Wolleh created an intimate portrait of René Magritte's domestic life and his artistic practice. A selection of black and white as well as color photographs from Lothar Wolleh's Estate from 1967 is on display.

Not least because of their enigmatic character, Magritte's paintings became part of our collective memory. Lothar Wolleh's photographs contribute to this collective memory. Magritte died shortly after the opening of the exhibition, which gave these photographs such high status - and also enabled Magritte to have the 'last word'.
