About artist
Rudolf Häsler
Interlaken, 1927 — 1999

Rudolf Häsler (*29.7.1927 Interlaken - 18.1.1999 Sant Cugat del Vallès) was born in Interlaken and can be considered as one of the most autonomous Swiss artists of the 20th century. As part of the Cuban Revolutionary Government the painter was appointed national director of arts and crafts. After Che Guevara he held the second highest position as a foreigner within the Cuban government. Towards the end of the 60s the painting, design and graphic artist withdrew from Cuba. Together with his family he left for Spain, from where he travelled around the world. In the 70s, Häsler developed a meticulous realism, which can be adscribed to the hyperrealistic genre of painting. His nonpareil artistic oeuvre allows parallels to be made to Franz Gertsch, Ralph Goings or Antonio López Garcia.
