We were curious to find out who gave the name of the school, who was then Mataré. So …
Ewald Wilhelm Hubert Mataré (February 25, 1887 in Burtscheid, Aachen – March 28, 1965 in Büderich today Meerbusch) was a German painter and sculptor, who dealt with, among other things, the figures of men and animals in a stylized form.
Doors of the south portal of Cologne Cathedral look • Doors of the Church of Peace in Hiroshima • Altar design in St. Andreas Church in Düsseldorf • The entire interior of St. Rochus Church in Düsseldorf • The phoenix - North Rhine-Westphalia Parliament building look • The pigeon fountain in front of Cologne Cathedral • Entrance gate and windows of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf • Portal of St. Lambertus Basilica in Düsseldorf look • Façade as well as Portal and Balcony at the Essen Minster Schatzhaus • Façade of Haus Atlantis in Bremen look • Soldier Memorial in Cleves Mataré's most famous works include:
Matare's work varies from the pleasing simplicity of his animal forms in which he explores shape and line, to the profound spirituality of his religious works. Even those not religiously inclined cannot fail to be deeply moved by many of these works. In them, he expresses what is best in the human spirit.
Awards • 1952 Mataré awarded the Thorn Prikker price of Krefeld. • 1953 Grand Art Prize of North Rhine Westphalia. • 1955 Mataré awarded the Golden Medal of the Triennale in Milan. • 1957 awarded the Stefan Locher Medal of the City of Cologne. • 1958 The highlight of the work is honored Mataré with the grand cross of the FRG.
It is remarkable that an artist of such power is not better known internationally. BUT …
His nephew Herbert Franz Mataré (born 1912) is a German physicist and co-inventor of the "European transistor" 1948. Mataré developed crystal rectifiers from silicon and germanium at the Telefunken laboratories in Berlin and Silesia.
It was interesting to know something about the school and about the artist Mataré.

As we can see, Germany has the direct exit to the Baltic Sea and the North Sea.
Baltic Sea is an epicontinental sea in Northern Europe, the Atlantic Ocean bound by the North Sea. It covers an area of 432,800 km2. Shows two large bays, the Gulf of Bothnia and Gulf of Finland in the north east. This community southwest of the North Sea and Skagerrak Kattegat Straits.
By 2030, Germany aims to build 30 wind farms in the North Sea and Baltic Sea, according to the Welt am Sonntag publication.
Germany is crossed by the River Rhine. Rhine (Rhein in German) is a river located in western Europe. It rises in the Swiss Alps and flows north, then west, crossing West Germany, and flows into the North Sea after passing through the delta region of the Netherlands. Its length is 1,319 km, of which 870 km are navigable.
A number of channels connects between the river and the river basins of theRhone, Marna and Danube.
These shells, Corbicula Fluminea, phylum: Mollusca, class: Bivalvia Linnaeus
invasive spread in Europe, from West to East, and entered after opening Danube Rhine-Main - Danube canal allowing the mixing of existing faunas ofRhine and the Danube basin.
With a giant fibreglass mustard pot standing at the front doors, Dusseldorf’s Mustard Museum is easy to find. It’s actually situated at the back of the Loewensenf mustard shop on Bergerstrasse, a few minutes walk from the Old Town Hall in the heart of Dusseldorf.
To be fair the museum is more of a lure than a genuine attraction – quite simply, they want to entice you there in the hope you’ll buy some mustard; however, the miniature exhibition about the methods used for processing the grains and turning them into a jar of mustard is nicely put together and actually very interesting.
There’s no admission charge for entry to the museum, you just enter through the shop entrance and the exhibition occupies the rear half of the premises. There are examples of the different types of mustard seed used and then examples of how the machinery used in the manufacture of mustard has changed over the years.
There’s a lovely display of different glass and ceramic mustard pots, some of them centuries old. Some are domestic items, others are commercial pots, a few of which are from mustards that were exported to German immigrants living in the United States.
The most fun is when you taste the different varieties of mustard; there’s a circular table in the centre of the shop and all the jars are open so you can use a little wooden scoop-y stick to sample from the jars. The smell is really very strong and does wonders for the sinuses from just standing near the table.
Around the walls there are black and white photographs that show workers and scenes from the mustard factory, some of them going back to the early days.
The most interesting thing we learned is how mustard got it's name: centuries ago wine must rather than vinegar was used, hence the name mustard.
We found out that Löwensenf extra Mustard is Germany's no.1 • Market leader for hot mustard in Germany • Most famous mustard brand in Germany • Premium product with cult status • Unususal hotness and typical flavor coin the inimitable character
