Biography  
Walter Rudolf Mumprecht


Walter Rudolf Mumprect was born in Basel, Switzerland.  After training as a cartographer and lithographer, Mumprecht began teaching himself to paint. 

From 1949-1954, he lived in Paris.  He moved to Zurich in 1956, and temporarily established a studio in Versailles in 1961.  There, he created large-scale works.

In the early 1950's he devoted himself increasingly to oil painting, and broke away from the objective.  He did however, continue to work with a variety of printing techniques.  His early works were still largely figurative, and were motivated and influenced by Ferdinand Hodler. 

Since 1964, the artist lives and works mainly in K├Âniz near Berne.
