Alfred Heinrich Pellegrini

Heinrich Pellegrini was born in Basel in 1881. His childhood was marked by the early death of his father, who ran a sculpture business. In 1896, Pellegrini took courses in applied arts at the Allgemeine Gewerbeschule (General Vocational School) in Basel. From 1899 to 1901, he studied at the Academy of Art in Munich. He then took a job with the Atar printing company in Geneva. In 1906, Pellegrini moved with his family to Stuttgart and studied with Adolf Hölzel. From 1914 to 1917, he initially lived in Munich, where he worked as a teacher at the Kunstgewerbeschule (School of Applied Arts), and then later moved to Berlin. He returned to Basel in 1917 and his works began to attract attention. Pellegrini was one of the initiators of the Basel Art Loan, founded in 1919, and from 1925 to 1953, he was a member of the Art Commission for the Basel Public Art Collection. He often worked as an art and sports journalist. In 1949, the city of Basel honoured him with its Art Prize, and he represented Switzerland at the Venice Biennale in 1950. Pellegrini died in Basel in 1958.
