Tinguely Jean (1925 – 1991)

He was born in Fribourg and studied in Basel, where he discovered Schwitters and Klee and Bauhaus.  Still young Tinguely devoted himself to painting, with references to Dalì, Mirò and Klee. But soon he understood that he wasn’t able to express himself freely  through painting . When he moved to Paris, he took part at the group Nouveaux Réalisme and discovered sculpture: thus he created the first three-dimensional works with ironic and playful inspiration, made with parts of toys, wires, levers, gears, and visibly influenced by Dadaist poetry. That’s how he payed tribute to the provocations and the paradoxes of Duchamp, as well as  Picabia. Thanks to the relationship with the French artist Niki de Saint Phalle, the Fountain Igor Stravinski in the Centre Pompidou square and sculptures in Giardino dei Tarocchi in Toscany were created.
