Charles Hindenlang (1894-1960)

Back to Catalogue

The Swiss painter and glass-painter Charles Hindenlang lived and worked in Basel, and his character was profoundly shaped by the local traditions of carnival night and the Dance of Death. He was a member of the Basel anti-fascist artists’ group Rot-Blau II (Red-Blue II), and co-founder of the legendary Gruppe 33. In the early 1930s, he often spoke out against national socialism.

One of his most popular works in the field of glass-painting is above the entrance to the Kunstmuseum in Basel.
