Rudolf Urech-Seon

While Swiss painters in the 1930s sought to represent idyllic scenes, Rudolf Urech-Seon (1876–1959) tried to depict nature by using geometric forms. He graduated as a painter from the Art Academy in Munich at a time when abstract art already prospered, though not in his hometown Aargau, which still followed the tradition of Post-Impressionism and had little comprehension for modern movements. Urech-Seon was left no other choice than to seek his own artistic path. As a loner he reinvented abstract art in his rural countryside-studio in Seon.

About the project

Several works of Rudolf Urech-Seon's estate are part of bromer kunst's collection, therefore, the gallery is committed to promote the artist's notable oeuvre and to grant recognition to him. In this context, bromer kunst supported the elaboration of an extensive monograph about the artist. In addition, the gallery organized a solo exhibition with Urech's artworks.

Rudolf Urech-Seon
Seon, 1876 — 1959

After his apprenticeship as a flat painter, Rudolf Urech (18.2.1876, Seon - 23.7.1959, Seon) founded 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 secure family and professional situation, Urech decided 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).
