The legacy of church artist Fritz Kunz

Born in Einsiedeln, Fritz Kunz (1868-1947) would go on to become one of the most important Catholic church artists in the German-speaking part of Switzerland in the first half of the 20th century. He studied at the Academy of Art in Munich. Some of his best-known works can be seen in the Liebfrauenkirche church in Zurich and the Catholic Parish Church in Romanshorn. In 1919 he came to live in Zug. His estate consists of oil paintings, large-scale chalk sketches as well as small coloured sketches for altar, wall and ceiling paintings and for stained-glass panels, study sheets, sketch books and work photographs. The extensive collection of pictures and sketches includes important works from each period of his creative work.
