Josef Seger

[Austria] (b 1908)

A twentieth century Austrian etcher, painter and arts teacher, Josef Seger studied art in Vienna at the Graphic Teaching and Research Institute and at the Academy of Pictorial Art, under Alfred Cossmann. Before the Second World War (1939-1945), Josef Seger exhibited his original etchings in Vienna, Berlin, Munich and elsewhere.
  After the end of World War Two, he became a Professor at the Vienna Academy. In 1948 he was chosen to design a new set of postage stamps by the government of Austria. Working in conjunction with the Museum of Folk Art, Vienna, produced the famous stamps depicting the traditional costumes of Austria.
  The British Museum, London, includes an impression of Josef Seger's "Bergkirche in Liechtenstein" (Mountain Church in Liechtenstein) in its permanent collection.
