Exhibition Ciäsa Granda

Giovanni Segantini. Between Soglio and Maloja

Paintings and drawings from the collection of the Segantini Museum in St. Moritz.

After Giovanni Segantini (1858-1899) had moved with his family from Savognin to Maloja in 1894, he soon spent the winter months at the Hotel Palazzo Salis in Soglio (Bergell), which he called the "threshold to paradise". On the way between Maloja and Soglio, the museum Ciäsa Granda shows a selection of paintings and drawings from the collection of the Segantini Museum in St. Moritz.

The exhibition includes lesser known but nevertheless interesting works from the time of Segantini in the Brianza: Portraits, still lifes and genre paintings depicting the "condition humaine" of simple farmers and shepherds and appealing to the viewer's emotions. Among the highlights are the early main work "The Blessing of the Sheep", but also the later divisionist painting "Dead Little Deer" or the large sketch "Vergehen" (The Death) of the right side of the famous Alpine Triptych. Segantini's paintings and drawings are supplemented by a series of photographs showing the artist in portrait, in the circle of his family or while painting in the landscape.
