Ferdinand Hodler at Fondation Beyeler

Ferdinand Hodler is considered as the best-known Swiss painter of the 19th century. Hodler is known for his portraits and nature and landscape images, especially those of the Swiss mountains and lakes. Hodler's paintings had a major influence on Switzerland's picture and perception of itself. At the same time, he was one of the most important representatives of the transition from the 19th century to modernism. The Fondation Beyeler in Riehen (Basel, Switzerland) currently presents a comprehensive exhibition of the late work of Ferdinand Hodler. The show has been organized in conjunction with the Neue Galerie in New York and is curated by Ulf Küster (Fondation Beyeler) and Jill Lloyd (Neue Galerie). In this video, Ulf Küstler provides us with a guided tour of the exhibition. He presents highlights of the show and talks about the life and work of the artist.
