Junge spanische Maler, Kunsthalle Basel (1959)

Thank you very much, Philipp!
I once saw such an extra-narrow c used in the headlines of a pre-digital German-language newspaper from Switzerland. If I recall correctly, it looked pretty much like this one – simply vertically cut, not unlike in Futura. Alas, I can’t remember which newspaper it was. I wouldn’t rule out the possibility that such a sort was available, as contextual alternate or fitted pair.
As you know, in German spelling, a lowercase c almost always appears in the digraphs ch and ck, or the trigraph sch. As such, it can make sense to keep the glyph horizontally compact, so that the phonetic unit is more cohesive.
