"A monochromatic image of a stern-looking keyboard player that virtually defines spooky chic-made all the more arresting with its tangerine boarder and funerary flowers-creates a spectacular advertisement for this organ and piano firm. Unger was an illustrator and painter who worked in Germany and briefly in Paris and was an active member of the Munich Secession." (Rennert, XLI, 37)
For over 100 years, the Estey Organ Company manufactured organs large and small in Brattleboro, VT. These included some 520,000 reed organs, 3200 pipe organs, and, at the end, a foray into the area of electronic organs. (Esteyorgan.com)
"Hans Unger studied at the Art Academy in Dresden from 1892 until 1895. In 1897/1898 he lived in Paris. Back in Dresden he shared a studio with Sascha Schneider and Richard Müller. He worked for "Pan", "Studio" and "Jugend" and he was a member of the Secession in Munich. Later he was mostly involved in portrait painting. Unger lived in Dresden-Loschwitz for a long time."
