Ernst Seger (1865-1939)
After completing his studies, Ernst Seger trained with Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) and then opened his own studio in Berlin in 1894. Already in 1895 he created the well-known memorial for Kaiser Wilhelm in Glatz; much more popular, however, are his Art Nouveau female nudes. (ala)
