Deutsch: Wilhelm Gallhof, deutscher Maler, Grafiker und Bildhauer (* 1878 Iserlohn; gefallen 1918).
English: Wilhelm Gallhof (1878 at Iserlohn - Died in Action 1918) was a German artist who studied in Munich, Karlsruhe, and with Lovis Corinth in Berlin. He worked in Weimar and Paris and was represented in many national and international exhibitions. As a sculptor and graphic artist, he was equally successful and brilliant as a painter.

The oil painting by the German sculptor, painter and printmaker Wilhelm Gallhof titled Die Korallenkette (The Coral Chain) features a young woman reclining on a sofa, holding her red coral beads necklace on her left hand and admiring her beauty looking at a hand-mirror held on her right hand. Also she wears a string of the same type of red coral beads on her right ankle.

This particular painting appeared as a full page display in the German Magazine: Jugend (Youth), 1917, Volume II, No. 42, page 824/825). What a terrible shame that war had to take this wonderfully talented human being.
