HONEGGER, GOTTFRIED


* 12.6.1917 Zurich, † 17.1.2016

Gottfried Honegger is one of the most important exponents of Concrete Art, and in 1987 was the co-founder of the "Stiftung für Konstruktive und Konkrete Kunst Zürich" (foundation for Constructive and Concrete Art, Zurich). Born in 1917 in Zurich, he founded a studio for printing, decoration and photography in 1938 with the print-maker and artist Warja Lavater, who later became his wife. After enjoying success as a commercial artist, he lived in New York between 1958 and 1960 where, impressed by the early avant-garde and his acquaintance with its members, such as Sam Francis and Mark Rothko, he decided to become an independent artist. At the beginning of the 1950s his works were still mostly characterised by motifs drawn from nature. From 1960 he lived and worked between Paris, Cannes and Zurich, and dedicated himself to geometry.

From 1970 he produced many large format works for public spaces, and his sculptures can be found at venues including ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), Bad Ragaz, and the sculpture park in Heidelberg. His work received public recognition with numerous exhibitions in Switzerland and internationally, with a retrospective at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, in 1915.


Honegger died at the age of 98 in 1916.
