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.
Several works of Rudolf Urech-Seon's estate are part of our collection, therefore, the gallery is committed to promote the artist's notable oeuvre and to grant recognition to him. In this context, Galerie Bromer supported the elaboration of an extensive monograph about the artist. In addition, the gallery organized solo exhibitions 2017/18 in Roggwil and 2020 in Zurich.
