Art Appreciation outing - Gianadda Foundation

About this event :

Art Appreciation outing – Gianadda Foundation, Martigny

Thursday, 8 June, 14:00

Come join us on our last outing to the exhibition at Gianadda of a collection of 60 paintings by Hodler, Monet and Munch.The three painters were from different countries and never met but lived through the great changes in science and technology which took place in the the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.

They all produced paintings of the natural world. They observed the effect of light on water, snow and mountains and each portrayed these in their own style.

There is also an opportunity to see Monet’s painting, Sunrise, executed in 1872, which has been added to the current exhibition last week. This is the first time the picture has been shown in Switzerland.

We will meet at the entrance to the gallery at 14:00 and, weather permitting, have coffee later in the grounds.

Please let Margaret Ellison or Alison King know if you would like to join us. Send email to
