The portrait of the front side of 200 Swiss franc note shows Charles Ferdinand Ramus (1878-1947), one of the  major French-speaking Swiss authors of the 20-th century. It is characterised by high aesthetic standards and a profound commitment to the truth. During his lifetime Ramuz was often - incorrectly - classified as a regional author, even though his artistic commitment and critical analysis of the classical French mode of expression put him ahead of his time. Today, Ramuz is regarded as a modern writer who renewed the formal structure of the novel.
