Swiss artist

Hans Erni (1909 - 2015 in Lucerne) is the most popular Swiss artist and also the best known internationally. Presenting over 300 of his works culled during eight decades of activity, the collection documents the many different themes and techniques he explored throughout a unique creative life.

Hans Erni is committed to social, ecological and sociopolitical ideas and perspectives. The artist’s critical interest in modern technology and his concern for human dignity in our modern world lead to unexpected confrontations.

Awarded the Art Prize of Lucerne in 1968 and the UN Peace Medal in 1983, Hans Erni was honoured for his life’s work by his home town, which granted him the freedom of the city in 2004.
