Exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay, Paris, 2 March - 27 June 2021

At the end of the 19th century, the artistic scene in Switzerland was full of vitality. In the late 1890s, a generation of painters became established and radically renewed the art of their time. These included Cuno Amiet, Giovanni and Augusto Giacometti, Felix Vallotton, Ernest Bieler and Max Buri.
Trained in France, Germany or in Italy, and in touch with European avant-garde movements, they explored the expressive, symbolic and decorative power of line and colour, while favouring subjects inspired by a history and national culture of Switzerland that was just being invented, and against the background of the young federal state created in 1848.
This exhibition catalogue gathers 70 masterworks from Swiss public and private collections. It re-establishes the development of Swiss painting in the 1900s in its historical context, and highlights its protagonists along with the collectors, art critics, mediators and art dealers.
