Swiss artist and author of German, Dutch and Belgian descent. A figurative painter in the technique of the Old Masters and author of a handbook of painting technique. He reconstructed the lost technique of the European multilayer oil-resin painting during 35 years of self-teaching and experimentation. Defined the translucency of color as its fourth property. Used naturally grown raw material as far as possible. Created drawings and etchings as well. Philosopher of a non-academic meditative way of art, formulated the "Transcendental painting" and "The School of pure vision". Painted from 1917 until 1987. Founder of the Egon von Vietinghoff Foundation in 1989.

His son Alexander became a professional astrologer, and his nephew Joachim became a film producer.

Vietinghoff died 14 October 1994.
