Alexander Müllegg

Alexander Müllegg was born in Bern in 1904. He lost his parents Alexander and Eugenie Elisabeth Müllegg when he was young. In 1919 he went to Zurich and trained in business. He continued his education at evening classes at the Kunstgewerbeschule [school of arts and crafts] in Zurich, and also attended day classes from 1928. A serious illness forced him to stay at health spa in Davos where he became friends with Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, who immortalised Müllegg in a woodcut in 1930. He returned to Davos many times over the next few years. Other stages of his artistic development included trips to France, Italy (especially Sicily), Munich and Vienna. He was back in Bern in November 1930, where he initially had a studio on the Gerechtigkeitsgasse and later worked for several years in the Atelierhaus [studio house] on the Postgasse. In the 1950s he was twice awarded the Kunstpreis [art prize] of the City of Bern. Müllegg always stood up for culture, and was committed to it: for more than 25 years, he was a board member of the Kunsthalle Bern association, and at times a member of the cantonal art commission and the board of the Bern Section of the Society of Swiss Painters, Sculptors and Architects. He was also a member of the Aeschlimann Corti Scholarship from 1947 to 1966 (together with Trudy Schlatter, among others). In 1969 he showed his works in the Kunstmuseum Thun, in what would be his last major exhibition. Müllegg died in Köniz in 1982
