Biography   Hans Erni


Hans Erni was born in 1909.  Erni attended the Kunstgewerbeschule in Lucerne in 1927-28, which was followed by further stays in Paris and Berlin.  In 1933-34 he joined the artist's group Abstraction-Création in Paris, where he also met artists like Hans Arp, Alexander Calder and Wassily Kandinsky.

In the 1930-40s, he was very successful with fresco painting, a medium the artist deeply preferred because of its impact on society.  In 1950 Erni created his first ceramic works and discovered lithography as another central technique of his future artistic output.  In 1972 he set up his studio in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, but he continued to be active in Lucerne, where he was born and obtained personal museum spaces.
