Here are the remaining prints by Helmut Clausen. This has produced a genealogical mystery. My cousin in Germany told me that Helmut was not the son of Fritz Claassen and Lily Schridde Claassen. She has talked to her mother, Gerda who is 84 years of age.
My cousin also said that Fritz and Lily name was spelled Claassen as opposed to Clausen. Mystery number one and mystery number two is who was Helmut and why did my grandmother have his prints? Mystery number three and four is Helmut the son of a brother of Fritz Claassen and why did my mother say he was a cousin?
The last mystery is why I do not get any information when I do a Google search for his name. I even did a search on Google.de.
Helmut does a good job with the painting of water and the reflections. That is difficult to do in water colors. The reflections of light are good too.
