Arnold Brugger

Biography from Dobiaschofsky Auktionen, Bern

Arnold Brügger learned the lithographing trade in the parental art institution from 1904-1908 and subsequently attended the Kunstgewerbeschule Bern for a short time. This was followed by stays in Cologne, Berlin, Munich and Paris, which familiarized him with the currents of the international avant-garde. In 1913 he returned for financial reasons to Meiringen, where he had his main residence from then on. While his early work was under the influence of Paul Cézanne, Cubism and German Expressionism, he developed an independent, impasto and flat style of painting and a palette dominated by muted, tonal colors after his return to the native mountains.
