Who was Tadeusz Fuss-Kaden?

Tadé was the name used by Tadeusz Fuss-Kaden to sign his paintings as Tadé or Fuss or Kaden. Fuss was his mother's name and after an acknowledgement of paternity by justice his name was Kaden of his father.

He was a painter of Polish origin who gained international attention in the 1960s for his powerful abstract compositions made of plaster and resin on board, with strips and rounds of rusted tin cans embedded on the surface. Later in the 60s Tadé expanded his work by wooden sculptures looking like insects or mars people. In addition he started his typical design of Mediterranean houses.

In 1941 together with other Polish painters he renovated a ceiling painting of a chapel in Zuchwil, Switzerland and delivered 1942 a design for glass windows of a church in kanton Solothurn. 1947 there followed a mosaic work in Bellach, Switzerland.
