Biography   Cuno Amiet


Cuno Amiet was a Swiss painter, illustrator, graphic artist and sculptor.  As the first Swiss painter to give precedence to colour in composition, he was a pioneer of modern art in Switzerland.

Amiet was born in Solothurn, and was the son of the chancellor of the canton of Solothurn, Josef Ignaz Amiet.  He attended the Kantonsschule Solothurn, where he graduated with the Matura in 1883.  After studies with the painter Frank Buchser, he attended the Munich Academy of Fine Arts* in 1886-88, where he befriended Giovanni Giacometti.  In 1888-92, Giacometti and Amiet continued their studies in Paris, where Amiet studied at the Académie Julian* under Adolphe-William Bouguereau, Tony Robert-Fleury and Gabriel Ferrier.
