Hans Erni, considered by some to be Switzerland’s Picasso, passed away on Saturday at the age of 106. Born in Lucerne in 1909, the sculptor and painter never stopped working. He completed the fresco at the entrance of the Palais des Nations, which contains the office of the United Nations in Geneva in 2009. The video below produced by SRF and swissinfo.ch looks back on his incredible life.
