Niklaus Manuel Güdel
In this lecture, Niklaus Güdel, Director of the Ferdinand Hodler Institute, Geneva, proposes a comparison between Fredinand Hodler and Mark Rothko based on their common interest in the Italian Renaissance. Preoccupied with color, death, and the place of the human body in nature, both artists found inspiration in Italian painting, notably the art of Giotto and Fra Angelico.
The exhibition Ferdinand Hodler: Drawings—Selections from the Musée Jenisch Vevey will be open at 5:30 PM for program attendees.
