Swiss Expressionist painter and stained glass designer, Fred (Friedrich) Stauffer (1892-1980) is known for his symbolist and lyrical landscapes of his homeland, Bern, Switzerland. Working against naturalism, Stauffer was greatly influenced by the free-flowing lines and simplified colors of the work of Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch, using such techniques to create personalized visions of his native region. Stauffer studied art under Franz von Stuck at the Munich Academy in Germany, and his murals and stained glass can be seen in public buildings throughout Switzerland. Stauffer's work is in the permanent collections of several museums, including the Kunstmuseum Bern, and the Kunsthaus Zurich.
