Used naturally grown raw material as far as possible. Created drawings and etchings as well. Philosopher of a non-academic meditative way of art, formulated the "Transcendental painting" and "The School of pure vision". Painted from 1917 until 1987. Founder of the Egon von Vietinghoff Foundation in 1989.
