Ferdinand Hodler. Catalogue Raisonné der Gemälde

Band 4: Biografie und Dokumente

Ferdinand Hodler (1853–1918) is arguably the foremost Swiss artist of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Ignoring artistic conventions of his time, he created a vast oeuvre of landscapes, portraits, and monumental paintings of historic scenes, as well as drawings and sketches. Hodler gained some recognition outside Switzerland during his lifetime, but a number of recent international publications and exhibitions, as well as increasing prices for his works at auctions, indicate that Hodler has lately come to be seen as an important and highly renowned figure in art history.

Published to mark the one-hundredth anniversary of Hodler’s passing, this fourth volume concludes the monumental catalogue raisonné of his paintings, offering the authoritative critical and modern biography of this eminent artist.
