The Swiss sculptor Jean Tinguely was born in Fribourg on 22 May 1925.  After going to school in Basle, he began an apprenticeship as a shop-window decorator in a department store in 1940.  He then studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Basle from 1941 to 1945, a period during which he discovered the art of Schwitters and Klee as well as becoming an enthusiastic fan of the Bauhaus*.

Tinguely began experimenting with kinetics*, movement in space in 1944 with his machine-like sculptu (showing 500 of 2772 characters).
