Autodidact maybe, but a talented one

Artist or writer? Until he turned 25, Friedrich Dürrenmatt vacillated between the two careers, before opting for literature. However, he continued drawing and painting for the rest of his life – but in private. The Neuchâtel Dürrenmatt Centre houses 1,000 paintings and drawings – not to mention his caricatures. In his “dramatic” paintings, Dürrenmatt often reinterpreted motifs pulled from Greek mythology or religion. (Images: © Neuchâtel Dürrenmatt Centre / Swiss government)
