The Swiss art historian
Adolf Reinle described Max Hunziker as a "Christian
Surrealist." This Zurich born painter,
graphic artist, and illustrator is perhaps best
known internationally for his stained glass
windows (including the three choir windows of
the Johanneskirche in Bern).
Supported by the Winterthur philanthropist and
art collector Georg Reinhard, Hunziker studied
in Paris and southern France where he was influenced
by Paul Cezanne, Henri Matisse and Georges Rouault.
Hunziker's works imbue simple objects with poetic
and religious symbolism.
