Cuno Amiet (28 March 1868 – 6 July 1961) was a Swiss painter, illustrator, graphic artist and sculptor.
As the first Swiss painter to give precedence to colour in composition, he was a pioneer of modern art in Switzerland.
Amiet created more than 4,000 paintings, of which more than 1,000 are self-portraits.The great scope of his work of 70 years, and Amiet's predilection for experimentation, make his œuvre appear disparate at first – a constant, though, is the primacy of colour.
