Varlin (born 16 March 1900 as Willy Guggenheim in Zürich - died 1977 in Bondo, canton GR) was a Jewish Swiss painter.

His position in Swiss art history of the 20th century is exceptional: Varlin wasn’t influenced by avantgardist and abstract movements of his time, he coined his stand-alone own figurative work, that was about the fragility of everyday life.

Varlin was friends with Hugo Loetscher and Friedrich Dürrenmatt, he even painted them.
