The "Fritz Hug - Picture Archive" Association

The aim of the association “Fritz Hug – Picture Archive” is to document the extensive work of the great Swiss artist and animal painter Fritz Hug, to transfer it to a digital future and to make it accessible to the public free of charge via this website.

To this end, oil paintings, watercolors, drawings and lithographs will be photographed as completely as possible. The existing large archive of photographs of Hug works will be digitized, whereby the yellowing caused by ageing must be corrected. And all these Hug works will be made available to the public free of charge in this digital archive.

Archiving is a longterm project, because dozens of works still need to be photographed and hundreds of photographs need to be digitized. The archive will therefore be continuously supplemented and expanded.


Membership of this association is open to anyone who supports the aims of the association and wishes to preserve and exhibit Fritz Hug’s work for future generations.

The membership fee is CHF 50 per year and can be paid into the account.
