About artist
Hildegard Weber-Lipsi
Wädenswil, 1901 — 2000

Hildegard Weber-Lipsi (1901, Wädenswil - 2000, Küsnacht) already drew as a child and began an artistic education at the age of 20. She studied in Zurich, Karlsruhe, London, and Paris, where she took drawing lessons with the sculptor Morice Lipsi, her future husband. Already in 1929, she was able to exhibit in the Salon d'automne at the Grand Palais in Paris. After a time together with Morice Lipsi at the artists' colony "La Ruche", the two moved to a farm on the outskirts of Paris after their marriage in 1930.
The war forced the couple to go separate ways for a while, as Morice Lipsi had to flee to the Charente in 1941. Hildegard Weber-Lipsi had to move to Switzerland with her daughters. From then on the family lived alternately on Lake Zurich and in Paris.
Hildegard Weber-Lipsi regularly attended the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles and exhibited her paintings in France, Germany, Israel, Japan, and Switzerland.
