|Hermann H. Fischer was born in 1935 in Heilbronn Germany, the son of a school principal and a dentist.
Art has been his love since he can remember, but the practicalities of post-war Germany pushed him into a degree in mechanical engineering and business and ultimately to management and partnership of a highly successful business in Chicago and Los Angeles.
Retirement at the age of 43 gave Hermann the time to tour the world's museums and foremost art galleries to add to his art collection.
It wasn't until he moved to Palm Desert at the age of 70, that he gave in to his first love and put brush to canvas in earnest.
He chose the well established international painter Valentina Ratschenko and well known master plein air painters Terry Masters and Mark Kirckhoff as his teachers.
Hermann's first showing was at the highly competitive 2007 and 2008 Riverside County Fair Date Festival Art Competition where he won first and second prize ribbons. He also took first price in 2009 and again in 2010.
After joining the Palm Springs Art Museum in 2010, Hermann entered the Artist Council Museum Exhibition (ACE) and was accepted as a finalist. The same was repeated in 2011.
His painting were displayed at the Palm Springs Art Museum.
His paintings were sold by the Museum.
His work has sold by Art Galleries in Palm Springs, referrals and commissions to clients in Europe, Palm Beach, Chicago, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Palm Springs.
In 2013 he won the "Preston Ormsby Memorial Award" from the Artist Council of the Palm Springs Art Museum.
Hermann is an exciting artist, whose vision, imagination and skill placed him in the front rank of promising talents.
