christiesZurich 30 May 2016 Over the past 25 years, Christie’s has held 36 dedicated Swiss Art sales, a category which offers our clients around the globe a glimpse into the alpine world of Switzerland. Today, important works by one of Switzerland’s most renowned artists, Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918), such as Der Traum des Hirten or Der Holzfäller, are part of the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, respectively. Both paintings were bought at Christie’s Zurich in the past 10 years and are part of the 6,200 Swiss works of art which have been offered at Christie’s Zurich over the past 25 years.
Over the past decades, a significant development in Swiss artist gallery shows and museum retrospectives has taken place around the globe, including Félix Vallotton at the Grand Palais in Paris, Fischli /Weiss at the Salomon Guggenheim Museum in New York or Ferdinand Hodler at the Neue Galerie, also in New York. This has ignited the interest of international collectors and strong examples of Swiss art can be found from The Pushkin Museum in Moscow to a private collection in Dallas, Texas.
The auction will offer 96 lots covering the art making of all three parts of Switzerland. From the French speaking part of Switzerland comes Coucher de soleil à Grâce, ciel orangé et vert, painted by Felix Vallotton, from the Italian part emanates Il pittore (Alberto Giacometti) painted by Giovanni Giacometti in 1921 and from the German part derives a stunning sculpture made by one of the co-founders of the Dada movement Hans Arp, Dackelpuppe, a white marble sculpture made in 1965.
