Ingfried Paul Henze Morro

by on June 1, 2016

Ingfried Paul Henze Morro (German 1925-2013) AKA ‘Henze-Morro’ or ‘P.Morro’

Ingfried Paul Henze AKA ‘Henze-Morro’ or ‘P.Morro’, is a listed artist born on June 3, 1925 in Leipzig, Germany. There has been a lot of confusion regarding this artist over the last 50+ years and the various pseudonyms that he used, with many people believing there are about 3-4 different artists or more involved, but they are all the same artist. He died in his home in Lake Garda, Italy in 2013.

Alias variations on his name are numerous and include; Ingfried Henze, Ingfried Morro, Ingfried Henze-Morro, Ingfried Paul Morro-Henze, Ingfried Morro Henze, Paul Morro, P. Morro, Henze-Morro, Morro-Henze, Morró and Henze-Morró, as well as Peter Morro, Peter Heinze Morro and Henze Moro.

His signatures also vary greatly from painting to painting, from his real name to his various pen names, and can also differ in style with many apparent inconsistencies—Henze does not have ‘one specific’ signature, which has led to the longtime confusion over this artist and only added to the mystery surrounding his artwork. Most of his older landscapes show the signature of his real name of Henze, while his floral still life subjects often show the pen name of P. Morró, P. Morro or Henze Morro, and his portrait works often show the pen name of P. Morro or Paul Morro, and his newer works show the name of Henze Morro or Henze Morró. His style was often referred to as the new German Impressionism and many of his older landscapes feature the Black Forest region of Bavaria, while other paintings include European park scenes, Venetian scenes, cityscapes, seascapes & lake scenes, mountain-scapes, floral still life, and portrait.
Henze initially studied at the Leipziger Kunstakademie (Leipzig Art Academy) and also at the Leipziger Kunstgewerbeschule (Leipzig School of Applied Arts) under Prof. and Director Erich Gruner (German, 1881-1966), Karl Miersch (German, 1894-1964) and with R. Lange, before the start of WWII. In the late 1930’s, while still a student, Henze discovered his love for jazz music and became a member of the infamous nationally known jazz club called the Hot Club of Leipzig (HCL for short). At that time, the informal activities of the HCL were considered illegal under the Nazi regime, but many jazz greats later emerged from the HCL jazz club. After the War, from 1945-50, Henze continued his studies at the Kunstakademie München (Art Academy of Munich) under Prof. Adolf Schinnerer (German, 1876-1949) and Prof. Hans Gött (German, 1883-1974). He soon became Gött’s protégé. After his studies, he worked for an art dealer for a short time and also traveled and painted extensively throughout Europe. He soon settled in Tangier, Morocco for a brief time, and later resided in Paris where he maintained a studio. He eventually settled in Northern Italy in the Veronese territory of Caprino on Lake Garda, where he had both his home and art studio until he died in 2013.
