Here we have a painting by Swiss Artist Ernst Suter, most of his creations are sculptures so this is a rare find. Ernst Suter grew up in a bourgeois family in the city of Basel. Even before he had received his high school diploma, he had to leave the canton school because of his participation in a student revolt. He then did an apprenticeship as a sculptor with Jakob Probst, with whom he had a lifelong friendship. In 1923 he went to Paris to continue his studies. There his first teacher was Henri Bouchard (1875-1960). He then went to Paul Landowsky. He took courses at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. He worked for Aristide Maillol in Marly-le-Roi for two years until 1926 as a journeyman, after which he ran his own studio. With his friend Wilhelm Gimmi (1886–1965), he was often the guest of John Friedrich Vuilleumier and often met his artist colleague Charles Häusermann (1886–1938). In 1934 Suter returned to Basel.
In 1939 Suter married his second wife, the doctor Anna Ernst. From 1946 he lived with his family in Aarau. In the 20th century, Suter, along with Eduard Spörri, was the most important sculptor of the old school. He designed a lot in public space in Aargau and especially in Aarau and worked together with the Basel architect Rudolf Christ (1895-1975). Hans Geissberger and Hugo Weber were students of Suter.
