Albert Welti Art

Swiss, 1862-1912

Albert Welti was a Swiss painter and etcher, best known for the fresco, Die Landsgemeinde in the meeting room of the Ständerat at the Federal Palace and for his dreams and nightmare paintings, began studying engraving with Johann Conrad Werdmüller. In 1880, Welti did a one-year photography apprenticeship with his uncle Oswald Welti in Lausanne. In 1882, he attended the Academy of Fine Arts of Munich under the influence of Arnold Böcklin, who he met in 1885. After graduating, Welti obtained financial support from Karl von Rose, a generous patron of the arts. After his father's death, he assuaged his grief by visiting Innertkirchen and Vättis, where he created numerous pastel nature studies. After that, Welti worked in Munich until 1908, where he became friends with the author, Hermann Hesse. His work was part of the painting event in the art competition at the 1924 Summer Olympics. In addition to his art, Welti also designed postage stamps for the Swiss Post.
