Biography Paul Egestorff
Paul Egestorff (20th Century)
Born in London of mixed German and Irish heritage, he moved to Dublin in the 1930s, finding work there in an advertising agency. He attended night classes at the Metropolitan School of Art under the tuition of Maurice MacGonigal PRHA and Seán Keating RHA, and was soon having his work accepted in group exhibitions such as the RHA and the WCSI. Towards the end of the thirties he befriended Mainie Jellett. He became a pupil of hers and was one of only two of Jellett's students who explored the possibilities of wholly abstract painting. From Jellett he learnt the principles of 'translation' and 'rotation' of form and space - methods which Jellett had in turn learnt from Albert Gleizes in company with Evie Hone.
