Welcome to the homepage of the artist Jean Egger!


Like many Austrian artists of the interwar period Jean Egger – born as Hans Egger in Carinthia – was attracted to France, where he caught up with the established art scene within a short time and exhibited in famous salons. His liaison with Signe Wallin also took him to Sweden, where he painted a series of landscapes. The expressive touch of an Edvard Munch, whom he met in person, can be seen in many of Egger’s works. He was also appreciated as a portraitist and creator of intimate nudes. His works are in great demand in the art market today.
