Eberhard Viegener PortraitEberhard Viegener remained very close to Westphalia where he grew up and to the artists who worked there. He was friends with Christian Rohlfs, Wilhelm Morgner and Wilhelm Wulff and was one of a circle of artists including Milly Steger and Will Lammert who regularly met in Karl Ernst Osthaus’ residence, Hohenhof, in Hagen. After studying painting and attending the painting class in Hagen, he initially worked in his parents’ company before training to be a stage painter. He later spent some time in Switzerland and in Paris in 1928. He gained considerable inspiration for his work from the Folkwang Museum in Hagen and this, as well as his own idiosyncratic talent, is mirrored in his work from the early 1920s. From this Expressionist phase he then turned to painting coloured fields with clearly defined outlines a style that would mark his work for decades to come. His works were removed from public collections during the ‘Degenerate Art’ campaign.
