After his apprenticeship as a house painter, Rudolf Urech (18.2.1876, Seon - 23.7.1959, Seon) established a painting business in his home village Seon in the canton of Aargau in 1905 and married Marie Baumann in the same year. Despite a secured family and professional situation, Urech decided close his business to attend the Munich Art Academy from 1913 to 1916 and pursue an artistic career. In 1918 he returned to Seon and rarely left the village after that. From then on he called himself Urech-Seon to differentiate himself from the Basel painter Rudolf Urech (1888–1951).
