Ferdinand Hodler is linked to Geneva for a number of reasons, even if he cannot truly be called a Genevan painter. His work influenced many artists with careers recognized both locally and more widely. What exactly is Hodler’s heritage and how does it manifest itself in the work of those claiming to draw on it or who unknowingly refer back to it? Through a selection of their paintings, the Maison Tavel aims to highlight what links certain pieces to those of the master. The relationship is sometimes literal, but it can also be more indirect, discernible in the composition, the theme or the artists’ touch.
