About the Artist

(Swiss, born 1878)

Born in Zurich, Fritz Osswald studied in Winterthur near his birthplace. He then became a student of Nicolaus Gysis (born 1842) and Wilhelm von Diez (1839–1907) in Munich, before joining the Darmstadt artists' colony in 1913. Osswald's specialty was winter landscapes, especially snow scenes.
