Biography

In colorful prints, Lill Tschudi depicted the speed of modern life in Europe between the world wars, focusing on workers, athletes, and the new forms of transportation reshaping city life, such as the subway. The Swiss artist’s energetic, almost kaleidoscopic style resembled the dynamism of the Futurist artist Gino Severini, as well as the flat geometry of Fernand Léger, both of whom she studied with in the 1930s. Her adoption of the linocut printing technique stems from an early education at Britain’s Grosvenor School of Modern Art, a short-lived institution that promoted linocut printmaking as the ideal medium for the Machine Age. After serving with the Women’s Aid Service during World War II, Tschudi resumed her artistic practice, but began to work almost exclusively in a new gestural and abstract style.
