Melchior Winter-Langhagen 1908-1969

1908-1969, youngest child of a Swiss/German family in eastern Switzerland. He was arrested multiple times for his "dissolute way of life" and lived from 1929 mainly in closed psychiatric hospitals.
Winter-Langhagen developed his own visual language, his own typeface and its own belief, which expressed itself in his paintings and drawings. He often used recycled material. So many of his works are painted and written on newspapers, book pages, or packaging.
