Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The following was submitted by his great-granddaughter from Berlin, Germany:


Born on October 15, 1857, the son of a tailor.  After the war of 1870/71, a French Officer, living at his parents' house noticed the young boy's talent and gave him some watercolors.

In 1875 he graduated from high school and began his studies in liberal arts at Halle University.  Subsequently he worked as a teacher, also obtaining a Ph.D. in French. Not satisfied with the life of a teacher, he went to Berlin and began a course of study at the "Hochschule Fuer Bildende Kuenste" (until 1885), with the financial support of his brother and sister.

In 1895 he found full employment and married Marie Cramer von Clausbruch.

Hermann Seeger died on February 23, 1945 before he could escape from the Russians, while his wife made her way to Berlin, where she died in 1947, from the consequences of harsh conditions.
