Barbara Camilla Tucholski (b* 1947, Loitz) lives and works in Oevelgönne, Vienna and Rome. Tulcholski studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Düsseldorf followed by studies of art history, philosophy and German philology in Bonn. From 1989 until 2013 Tucholski had a professorship in the arts at the University in Kiel.

In her paintings and drawings Tucholski shows a delicate observation of her surroundings. She encounters her motifs with caution and precision. Her motifs and objects of visual research are mostly sites that are closely tied to her biography like her native town or places of residence. Again and again she depicts the same street or flight of stairs or transitory space applying different perspectives or angles. Tucholski paints and draws her works on site what accounts for their subjective narrative and breezy impression. 

Tucholski has partaken in many national and international exhibitions in museums and galleries since the late 1980s. Her works are represented in several public collections, for example the Albertina Vienna, Graphische Sammlung Städel Museum Frankfurt, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Städtische Graphische Sammlung Munich or the Staatliche Kunstsammlung Dresden. In 2015 Tucholski won the Egmont-Schaefer-Prize for Drawing.
