Divisionism. Mastery of Colour? Effusion of colour!

The key challenge at this ground-breaking exhibition is to tell the story of the Divisionist adventure as it spread across Europe. For the first time, over a hundred French, Italian, Swiss, Dutch, German and Belgian works are exhibited side-by-side. Works by major artists such as Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Camille Pissarro, Gaetano Previati, Angelo Morbelli, Carlo Fornara, Giovanni Segantini, Théo Van Rysselberghe, Giovanni Giacometti and Cuno Amiet interact and enter a dialogue as they highlight the movement’s multiple facets.

The new art center has been designed and build in memory of French entrepreneur and art collector Pierre Arnaud and offers and exhibition area of some 1,000 sqm. Architect Jean-Pierre Emery has come up with a project that is respectful both of the environment and of the display areas inside the building: the emblematic photovoltaic glass façade acts as a mirror reflecting the lake and surrounding alpine scenery. It will produce enough energy to run the complete lighting system of the art center. Inside, sunlight is filtered so that the works exhibited are perfectly protected.
