About the Work

Using shades of blue and yellow, the Swiss painter Ferdinand Hodler created this harmonious unity structured only by nuances of colour. The realms of mist and clouds and the surface of the water and the harshness of the Savoy Alps are made tangible by these divisions. Although they are mostly deserted, Hodler's landscapes nonetheless express man's longing for union with nature.
