Essay
Next to his artist colleagues Giovanni Giacometti, Ferdinand Hodler and Felix Vallotton, Cuno Amiet counts among the leading artists of Swiss Modernism. Even though he was living in a remote village surrounded by fields, he never lost contact with the contemporary tendencies in European painting. The scene shows Amiet‘s house in Oschwand right after it had been completed. Our painting presumably is the earliest depiction of Amiet‘s residence, erected between 1908 and 1909. For all his artistic life he put a focus on his private refuge and the surrounding landscape. Works from the artist‘s early period of creation are highly sough-after on the European art market. A large part of his earlier creations were destroyed in a fire at the ‘Glaspalast‘ in Munich in 1931. Like our painting, most of his early works are in private collections, passed on over generations, making their appearance on the art market a rare event. [SM]
