The Art and Archaeology Library (BAA) of the Museum of Art and History is exhibiting printed works on and around the theme of Ferdinand Hodler, showing how books, magazines, articles, exhibition and sales catalogues represent real markers in the artist’s career and testify to his growing reputation during his lifetime and over the course of the 20th century. The display presents works on the painter, catalogues from the exhibitions that supported the development of his career, as well as sales catalogues from the Moos Gallery (his dealer), all from the library’s historic collections. These works in print are presented in connection with the BAA’s “Hodler Bibliography” project, a digitized online bibliography that unites press articles and specialist reviews with links to the painter, taken from over 200 Swiss and European newspapers published between 1875 and 1918.
