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.

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 (*18.2.1876 Seon - 23.7.1959 Seon) graduated as a naturalist landscape painter from the Art Academy in Munich. Soon, he developed compositions concentrating on constructivist elements to the point of complete abstraction by employing geometrical forms and using bright colors. Back in Switzerland, Urech-Seon represented the first abstract painter in his hometown Aargau, which still followed the tradition of Post-Impressionism and had little comprehension for modern movements. Therefor, he frequented the Avant-garde circles of Basel and Zürich, where he exhibited his works and finally gained recognition.
