  • About the Artist
  • Bibliography

Jan Peter Tripp is a German painter and graphic artist best known for his realist depictions of famous writers, animals, and places. His works are similar in theme and ideology to his good friend, the late writer W.G. Sebald, who he grew up with. Both Sebald’s and Tripp’s works deal with memory and the residue of history on the present. Born on May 15, 1945 in Oberstdorf, Germany, Tripp went on to study sculpture at the Academy Stuttgart with Rudolf Daudert, and also painting with Rudolf Hausner. His works have been shown at the Goethe Institute in Paris, the State Gallery of Bierbach in Germany, and the Montreal Museum. Tripp lives and works in Mittelbergheim, France.
