Eberhard Werner was born in Glogau/Schlesien, the son of Friedrich Werner, a newspaper publisher and printer. After his battlefield injury that stemmed from the World War II was cured, he became a teacher in the GDR in Gransee and studied Art in Erfurt.
Although he was quite successful as an artist, he left the GDR in 1959 due to political-artistic restrictions. Werner was reluctant to accept the commercialization of art.
He died in Lübbecke.
