Fanni Fetzer & Heinz Stahlhut (Eds.)
The work of Swiss painter Hans Emmenegger (1866–1940) has finally been made available to a larger audience in this extensive monograph accompanying the exhibition in 2014 at Kunstmuseum Lucerne. Often considered along with his contemporaries, Swiss realist and symbolist painters Holder and Bocklin, Emmenegger created an extensive oeuvre of landscapes, still lives, nudes, animal and architectural paintings. His oils of hills, bald trees, barren snowmelts, shady forest glades and sunspots capture the “magnificently desolate and forlorn” landscapes of Central Switzerland and are considered a precursor to the realistic paintings of Franz Gertsch and Gerhard Richter. Over 160 of his artworks are represented, many for the first time, with insightful and historical essays by Patricia Bieder, Monika Brunner, Christian Klemm, Domink Muller, Heinz Stahlhut and Peter Suter.
