About artist
Eduard Boss
Muri, 1873 — 1958

After his preliminary education at the art school in Bern, Eduard Boss (1873, Muri near Bern – 1958, Bern) studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Geneva and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. A class excursion brought the artist to the art metropolis of Paris, where he was most likely taught by Paul Cézanne. Eventually settling in Bern, Boss was one of the best-known Swiss painters after the First World War and was a member of the Federal Art Commission from 1922 to 1926. Motifs from his immediate surroundings formed the basis for Boss's paintings; he painted the landscapes of the Aare Valley and immortalized farmers and workers in genre depictions.
