GOTTFRIED HONEGGER (1917, Switserland)

Gottfried Honegger studied shop-window display at the Zurich Kunstgewerbeschule and taught there from 1948. His early work was commercial graphic design. From 1955-1958 he was art director at Geigy. He lived in New York between 1958 and 1960, and held his first exhibition there. In 1961 he moved to Paris and concentrated on painting, which concentrated on exacting explorations of circles and squares, and (from 1968), sculpture.
