(1912 Müllheim – 1999 Winterthur)
Ernst Egli was one of the earlier artists working in Switzerland to turn to abstraction. Early in his career, inspired by his left-leaning political sympathies, he painted figurative works often featuring subjects from the life of ordinary working people, farmers and construction workers. After a stay in Paris during the 1950s, he turned to more abstract works, often based on plants, gardens and organic forms from the natural world.
Egli worked in a variety of media – engravings, murals, tapestries and ceramics. During the 1930 and 40s he also worked in the theater as a set designer.
Set of three large limited edition lithographs, signed and numbered by the artist in pencil. From an edition of 110 copies.
