Biography

Swiss Julius Schwyzer studied from 1888-90 at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Luzern, and then had a three-year apprenticeship with sculptor Louis Wethli (1842-1914) in Zürich. In 1906 Schwyzer moved to München for further training, and later stayed in North Africa and Paris. Schwyzer owned a studio for architectural sculpture and funerary art in Zürich together with his brother Bernhard. He created various sculptures for the public in Zürich and Aarau, and in 1922-23 built the soldier’s monument in the city garden of Chur.
