Eberhard Viegener began his artictic activities in the 1910s as an autodidact. Initially, he made works in an impressionist and pointillist style until he turned to Expressionism in 1917. Over the following years his oeuvre was characterized by woodcuts. Just as a great number of other expressionist artists, he was also quite fond of the woodcut as a suitable means of expression. Viegener attained a more realistic painting at a later point, a style in which he rendered also still lifes, genre- and landscape paintings. [CB].
