Victor Surbek

[Switzerland] (b 1885/d 1975)

"After studies in Italy, Germany (at the Munich and Karlsruhe Schools of Applied Arts)  and Paris (Academie de la Grande Chaumiere), he married fellow painter Marguerite Frey in 1914 and operated a painting school with her up until 1931. Surbek traveled widely and displayed his works at numerous expositions after 1905. In 1964, he and his wife set up a foundation to care for his works and archives in Spiez. (...) His very extensive work includes mainly landscapes, but also detail studies, portraits and still life's."
