Van Gogh, Cezann, Matisse, Hodler
Between 1905 and 1935, the Swiss art collectors Arthur and Hedy Hahnloser-Bühler amassed at their home in Villa Flora, Winterthur, a notable collection of paintings by post-impressionist masters, including Cézanne, Matisse, Hodler. Today, the Hahnloser Collection, is part of the collections of the art museums of Bern and Winterthur and is world renowned for its high artistic quality and its notable works by leading figures, many of whom became close friends of the Hahnlosers.
This catalog of extraordinary works from the collection includes work from Swiss and French modernist painters, including 120 color illustrations by such artists as Ferdinand Hodler, Félix Vallotton, Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Odilon Redon, and Henri Matisse, in addition to Van Gogh, Cézanne, Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec. Alongside the artworks is a text that provides unique insight into the unknown aspects of the lives and creative work of these artists in the early twentieth century and sheds light on the passions and motivations of the collectors.
