Comments: The Paradeplatz is an iconic square in downtown Zürich at Bahnhofstrasse. It is one of the most expensive pieces of real estate in Switzerland and has become synonymous with wealth and the Swiss banks, being the location of the headquarters of both UBS and Credit Suisse. The site of the square lay without the medieval city walls, and was incorporated into the town with the construction of the new ramparts in 1642. During the 17th century, it served as a livestock market, known as Säumärt ("pig market"), renamed to Neumarkt "new market" in 1819 and finally to its current name following the construction of Bahnhofstrasse (1865). The first horse-drawn trams circulated in 1882 and were electrified in 1896. This art work belong to the last Series painted by Hughes in Zurich before moving to Barcelona where he brilliantly contrasts people and the energy he usually talks about with well known buidlings, squares or places.

Price: CHF 5000
