Prince Max Egon

Prince Max Egon assumes responsibility for the Swabian estates in 1941. Being a man of far-flung cultural interest and ambition, he holds the title of honorary doctor from the University of Freiburg, while being an art collector and patron of contemporary musical art during the Donaueschingen Music Days. In the year of his passing, he is portrayed by painter Graham Sutherland, one of the most significant portrait painters of the 20th century. In his memory, Igor Strawinsky creates the musical piece „Epitaph for the tomb of Prince Max Egon of Fuerstenberg“.
