HODLER. Jura Bruschweiler. Fondation Pierre Gianadda, Martigny, 1991. 348 pp. with 519 ills. (177 col.). 24 x 22 cm. LC 91-205437 ISBN 2884430008 In French.
This well-illustrated catalogue highlights drawings and paintings on historical and nationalistic themes by celebrated Swiss artist Hodler (1853-1918), whose Symbolist-influenced, highly individualistic oeuvre encompasses numerous depictions of events and legendary figures in Swiss history. The genesis of 21 major paintings and mural projects dating chiefly from the 1880s and 90s is documented through illustrations of hundreds of preparatory studies, accompanied by substantial individual discussions describing the historical significance of the subjects, analyzing Hodler's treatment of the themes, and placing the featured works in the context of his artistic development.
