In the news section, we intend to publish information on activities related to the artistic work of Otto Wyler, to show additional works which have been found, documented and researched, before adding it to the general data base.


​Due to travelling restrictions during WW II – Otto Wyler lived and worked often from a studio in Losone (Ticino) – the paintings which were created there can be viewed in a separate album ( We were able to locate the place where he stayed and contacted the local historian Fausto Fornera to find out more about his stays in Losone.
