Mauritius has been displaying his pictures since 1991 in large-scale independent
exhibitions in Germany (Berlin, Duesseldorf, Essen, Hamburg, Cologne and
Munich). His special field of interest lies in portraits and landscapes.
He has been working intensively on a cycle of composer portraits. As a result
artistic cooperation often ensues with important music institutions leading
to an exhibition of composer portraits in the Duesseldorf Concert Hall (Tonhalle)
in 1994 and 1999, in the North German Radio and Television Broadcasting
Corporation in Hamburg (NDR) in 1995, and in the Aalto Opera in Essen in
2000. The link to music resulted in a commission with ARTE NOVA (Bertelsmann).
In 1997 he exhibited his portraits at the Firm LOEWE at the international
radio and television exhibition (IFA) in Berlin in 1997. In 1999 he exhibited
new portraits and landscapes in the Art Museum at Penzberg in Munich. The
composer portraits were exhibeted one more time in Houston, Texas, in 2001.
In the same year Norbert's work was displayed in Milan, Italy. In 2002 the
president of the state - government of North Rhine - Westphalia arranged
an exhibition, as well as Norbert Mauritius displayed his work in his studio.
In 2003 Norbert's cycle "Faces in Resistance" was exbibeted at
the police headquarters in Duesseldorf. Norbert Mauritius's new cycle "Portraits
of Painters" which he finished in 2004 has been displayed at the company
"ThyssenKrupp Nirosta GmbH" in Krefeld in the same year and at
the company "SIEMENS AG" in Mannheim in 2005.
