Biography

Swiss sculptor Alphons Magg was the son in a family of German ancestry. Despite his parents plan to take a commercial occupation, he studied at the graphical department of the Arts and Crafts Museum in Zürich and pursued private studies in München. In the years prior to World War I, he travelled to Italy, Spain and Paris. He then married American pianist Mary Avery and worked as a freelance artist in München. In 1917, he returned to Zürich. His earlier works were reliefs and figurative statues. Beginning in 1925 he produced several statues for Catholic churches in the German speaking part of Switzerland. One of his major works was the restoration and redesign of the facade ornaments of the Stiftskirche St. Gallen between 1931 and 1936. Besides this work, he produced several gravestones for prominent people and individual busts. His materials included wood, bronze, cement, terrakotta terracotta and stone.
