“A RECLINING TIGER” is one of Wiiralt’s most legendary sheets from the 1930s, where a superb animal figure and a landscape have joined. A slightly humorous glance is also eye-striking because of its abundance of technical nuances. A world-famous German graphical artist Käthe Kollowitz shouted while looking at Wiiralt’s works: “Oh my! How subtle technique! And how remarkable internal tension!”
Eduard Wiiralt is one of the most remarkable masters of graphic art. Eduard Wiiralt was born in the St. Petersburg province in 1898. In 1909, the family moved to Estonia. Wiiralt was educated as an artist in Tallinn Art Trade School and in Tartu Pallas, the sculpture studio of Anton Starkopf. The studies were interrupted by participating in the Estonian War of Independence. In 1922–1923, Wiiralt continued his studies, as a grantee of Pallas, in the Dresden Academy of Art in Germany under the supervision of Professor Selmar Werner.
In 1924, Wiiralt graduated from Pallas as a graphic artist and a sculptor. In the years 1925–1939, he lived in Paris, but returned to Estonia thereafter. He survived the II World War in Estonia. Wiiralt left for Sweden in 1945. The artist ultimately returned to Paris in the fall of 1946. Eduard Wiiralt died at the age of 55 in Paris and was buried in the Père Lachaise, a Cemetary for famous and talented people on 12th of January 1954.
