Zürich – Hotel Habis Royal on Bahnhofplatz, oil on canvas

From the collection of the Atelier Fritz Hug

Creation year


Fritz painted Zurich’s Bahnhofplatz several times in the 1940s and 1950s. Striking about this picture is the snow-white façade of the Hotel Habis Royal in the glaring sunlight. Of historical interest is the generous expanse and emptiness of this beautiful square, which today is barely usable for pedestrians and has degenerated into a mere traffic area for cars and streetcars.
