Willy Jäger (AKA Willy Jager)
Willy Jäger (AKA Willy Jager, German, 1912-1981) was born April 20th, 1912 in Bernburg (Saale), Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. He first went to the Polytechnic School of Architecture there (Polytechnikum und die Bauschule) and later studied at the Academy of Arts (Kunstakademie) in Leipzig and Dresden, Germany, under Prof. Walter Tiemann (AKA Walter Thiemann, German, 1876-1951) and Prof. Bruno Héroux (German, 1868-1933). In 1941, he became a member of the Reich Chamber of Culture of the “Fine Arts” (Reichskulturkammer der "Bildenden Künste"). From 1945 to 1957, he taught at different art schools including the University of Leipzig until 1957 when he gave up teaching to devote himself completely to painting. In 1949, he received the Goethe Prize, in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. Circa the 1950’s he furthered his studies under the well known artist Oskar Kokoschka (Austrian, 1886-1980) in his famous ‘School of Seeing’ which was located in one of Europe’s largest medieval castles called Hohensalzburg located in Salzburg, Austria. The Kokoschka School operated under the auspices of the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg. After study trips abroad in Austria, Italy, Spain, France and Africa, he went to Paris. From 1967 until his death on June 9, 1981 he had lived in Üettingen near Würzburg and had also taught at the Kunst und Handwerkerschule (Arts & Crafts School) in Würzburg. Many of his paintings feature the modern impressionistic style of that time period and he is primarily known for his landscapes, marine scenes/seascapes, and floral still lifes. He had many exhibitions in Europe and abroad to included; Berlin, Munich, Würzburg, Hamburg, Hanover and abroad in Riva (Italy), Copenhagen, Katweijk (Holland), Klagenfurt, Beijing, and various venues in the United States. Later in life, he was also an art dealer, where he represented not only his own work, but that of other represented artists.
