Black Tie International Art:  John Konstantin Hansegger

 

John Konstantin Hansegger

 

The Art Gallery at the Rockefeller Preserve in cooperation with Gallery
Moderne, Piermont, NY will present an exhibition of the Historic and renowned Swiss-American artist John Konstantin Hansegger to be held September 22nd thru October 28, 2012. The opening on September 22: 2:00-4:30 p.m. is hosted by the Friends of Rockefeller State Park, as well as Mark Waller and Audrey Leeds, co-curators.

J.K. Hansegger, born in St. Gallen, Switzerland in 1908, was a unique figure in 20th Century art, working at the highest level in most of the major movements of the century. His career spanned seven decades and five continents. Finding solace in art from the pain of his early life as an orphan he was recognized as a prodigy, achieving his first one-man show at the age of 20, Zug, Switzerland.

Hansegger moved to Paris and became a member of an artistic circle of avangarde artists, among them Picasso with whom he developed a friendship. Hanseger is one of the few artists to ever paint Picasso’s portrait. He mastered Cubism, Surrealism and invented a unique style, Abstract Parallels filled with symbolic imagery in bright primary colors. Picasso and Swiss Fernand Leger encouraged his career.

After World War 11, in need of adventure, Hansegger travelled extensively, holding successful shows in Japan, Sweden, Israel and in 1947 America where he exhibited his work along with Klee, Kandinsky and others at the famous Galerie Nierendorff, NYC.  Travels to South America as well as Africa brought him more fame with his vistas of brilliant impressionist paintings of new places, people and animals. While there, he became a friend of Albert Einstein, who granted him the honor of painting his portrait.  In addition, he explored and developed playful Rectilinear Figurative portraits and a captivating landscape style he called Ornamentalism.

In 1953, Hansegger was invited to hold a solo exhibition at Princeton University’s Art Museum. Albert Einstein befriended him and granted him the privilege of painting his portrait. Reviews acclaimed his talent and the University offered him a position, however JK chose to open a studio in NYC.

He enjoyed great artistic freedom, moving between more styles, painting for the joy of it. Portraits continued to sustain his career and included Governor Nelson Rockefeller, Toscanini, Thomas Mann, Zen Master D.T. Suzuki, Rabbi Herzog, President Dwight D. Eisenhower and many others.

Mark Waller is a Fine Art dealer and the founder of Gallery Moderne in Piermont, New York. He specializes in historical American Paintings from the Lower Hudson Valley and 20th Century Decorative Arts.

The Art Gallery at Rockefeller State Park Preserve is located at 125 Phelps Way (Route 117), Pleasantville, NY 10570. The gallery is open daily 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The Preserve is one of 15 state parks, six historic sites and two golf courses administered by New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation – Taconic Region.
