Biography

Albert Welti was the son of the famous Swiss painter Albert Jakob Welti, Sr. (1862-1912). He studied at the Art Academies in Düsseldorf, Bern, München, London, and Madrid. His parents died early, in 1911 and 1912. After drawing grotesque figures in his early works, Welti later concentrated on landscapes, still lifes, childrens’ and self-portraits, mostly as oil paintings. During a stay on the Balearic Islands, he became sick with typhus, and following his recovery he changed from painting to writing. In 1921, he settled in Genève. Welti was best-known for his engagement in a large number of essays and speeches on topics of the cultural, literary, and political questions of the 1930s and 1940s. He also wrote several theater and radio plays as well as novels. In 1963, he travelled to Greenland.
