The Musée d’Orsay sticks to its will to make us experience European Belle Epoque. In addition to its impressionist decorations displayed from April to July, the museum takes us to Switzerland, meeting painters who affirmed a particular and little-known style, anchored in the Swizz intellectual environment even though open to the European abundance.
Alongside works by Felix Vallotton we discovered in 2014 at the Grand Palais, over 70 works tell about the painters who worked for some Swiss modernity, cultural dynamism in Switzerland and from 1890 to 1914.
They are named Cuno Amiet, Giovanni and Augusto Giacometti, and even Ernest Bieler or Max Buri and have trained in France, Germany, and Italy. They brought vitality and modernism to a key moment in the history of the country, this young federal state created in 1848.
The exhibition highlights the profusion of artists and wishes to promote artists while showing bonds between their careers. This is why the space is divided into 10 different sections:
A wonderful and travel-inducing exhibition.
