Viktor Rutz, swiss poster designer and painter 

Viktor Rutz, a well known swiss poster designer, was wildly successful as a young man already, having created about 200 posters before he was 35. After World War 2, he suddenly became aware of the horrors of the concentration camps, and painted another version of a poster that he had designed for a cheese company in 1942. He turned away from a lucrative career in advertising and started to paint, changed his name to Victor Ruzo and traveled the world. Last year, at 91, he opened an exhibition of his paintings at the Russian State Museum in St. Petersburg, accompanied by his wife Ria. The double page at left is from the book and catalogue of that exhibition.
