“Föhn” is the name given in Switzerland to a usually strong southerly wind that is notorious for giving many people headaches. Over the Swiss lakes, this wind can produce dramatic images with lots of spray on moving water. With this picture of seagulls over Lake Uri trying to hold their own against the wind, Fritz has captured the “Föhn” atmosphere in an impressive way.

  1. During my childhood and youth, I was always surrounded by Fritz’s works. This picture, for example, hung in our stairwell for a long time. For me, his work is the definition of art and all artists are measured against his talent. There are very few who can hold a candle to him and hardly anyone else manages to give a single stroke so much character and meaning.
