A look back on the work of Swiss artist Hans Erni.This content was published on February 20, 2009 - 16:59
Erni celebrates his 100th birthday on February 21. He still works daily at his studio and urges everyone to aim for "constant renewal". He was never involved in a political party, although he was considered to be close to the communists. His paintings made him a rich man but the art world does not consider him a successful artist... rather a popular one.
