Description

Die Simplon-Post, oil on canvas

Creation year

1960s

It is not known why Fritz painted this wonderful picture of a stagecoach on the Simplon Pass road. He had hardly experienced the scene himself, as the stagecoach on the Simplon route was replaced by the Postbus in 1919, before Fritz was born. It is quite possible that the famous painting “Gotthard Post” by Zurich painter Rudolf Koller inspired him to create this work.
