Fritz Pauli

Fritz Pauli was born in Bern in 1891. He began an apprenticeship as a painter and decorator in 1906, but abandoned it to go and work with a photographer in Lausanne. He presented his first graphic experiments at the 1909 Christmas exhibition in Bern where painter Albert Welti became aware of him and recommended him to Munich-based teacher Peter Halm. Pauli began his studies in Halm’s composition class in Munich (without enrolling at the Academy), finishing in 1914. After returning from Munich, he had a studio in Zurich, but spent most of his time travelling: in 1918 he spent time in the Fex Valley; in the early 1920s he spent the summer months on Lake Zug; in 1925 he travelled to Tunisia; and he lived in Paris for four years from 1928. He exhibited his works at home and abroad. He took part in the Venice Biennale in 1948, and the Kunsthaus Zug held a retrospective in 1994. He also designed and created works in public spaces: in 1939, for example, he painted a passion scene in the chapel of the Bürgerspital Zug [Zug public hospital], and between 1947 and 1956 he painted frescoes in the Berner Rathaus [Bern City Hall]. From 1935 Pauli lived and worked in Cavigliano, Ticino, where he died in 1968.
