Biography 

The German draughtsman, painter and collagist Albert Wiegand was born in 1890 in Ziegenhain, North Hesse. From 1910 to 1913 he attended the drawing class at the Düsseldorf School of Arts and Crafts. Throughout his life, Wiegand earned his living by working as a window dresser or lantern lighter, but also devoted himself to art as a sideline. In the 1930s he developed a lyrical-expressive style, which gained in realism in his late work with formal, colour and motif reduction. His work is dominated by street and village scenes, and still lifes since the mid-1940s. During this time he also developed collages, which he assembled from earlier works. Albert Wiegand died in Leipzig in 1978. A large part of his oeuvre is now in the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden.
