To mark the centenary of the death of the great Swiss modern artist Ferdinand Hodler, the Kunstmuseum Bern and the Museums of Art and History of Geneva – located in the cities of the artist’s birth  and death – join forces to pay him tribute with an exhibition on the theme of parallelism.  In a 1897 lecture, Hodler organized his vision of nature and of the world into large parallel lines. This visual and sensory experience inspired his compositions of mountains, clouds and forests, as well as women, men and groups of figures, etc. The exhibition highlights the connections Hodler established both within each piece and between the paintings themselves. Visitors are invited to share Hodler’s sense of wonder in the face of this natural order and experience his determination to transform a sensation into a powerful and sublime pictorial system. English-language audioguides are included in the exhibition ticket price.
