Willy Müller-Brittnau

The Swiss artist Willy Müller-Brittnau is known for his expressive landscapes. His encounter with American action painting in 1958 was a key experience for him. He then developed a geometric visual language and made outstanding contributions to colour field painting and signal art in the 1960s and 1970s. In addition to painting, drawing and printmaking, he created numerous site-specific sculptures and developed color designs for buildings. In addition, he has assembled an excellent collection of concrete art and Pop Art himself.
