Alpine Ptarmigan, oil on canvas

60 x 80 cm

From the collection of the Atelier Fritz Hug

Creation year

1987 and 1988

This painting was also originally created for the CH91 exhibition, which ultimately did not take place. The picture is very densely painted, with the colorful spring plumage of the birds and the blooming mountain meadow as a background, it almost looks like a tapestry from the Baroque period. It is one of Fritz’s last oil paintings, which was only completed shortly before his grave illness.
