Art as a Bubble Barometer

Surges in Sotheby’s stock price ($BID) have had an uncanny correlation with bubbles.

When shares of the art auction house climbed to new heights, it marked the top in the Japanese financial bubble of the late 1980s, the technology stock market bubble of the late 1990s and the housing market bubble at the start of the Great Recession.

Swiss Art

Albert Anker, Schulspaziergang 1872

Albert Samuel Anker (1831-1910) is regarded as the "national painter" of Switzerland. His meticulous paintings of Swiss rural life endeared him to the public and during his heydays, he was regarded as the most popular artist. His works captured the daily and social life of the rustics in the picturesque villages of Switzerland. While these captured the imagination of the public, his portraits charmed the critics. Indeed, his portraits and still-life are what cemented his enduring legacy. Unlike many of his contemporaries, his documentation of the social life of villagers was never judgmental. Rather he portrayed them as plain and unpretentious. Anker also worked on many still-lives, which are considered to be among his most important works. He strongly believed in a stable word order, which are apparent in his works because of their realist solidity. No wonder, he is considered as the greatest Swiss painter of the 19th century.

Ferdinand Hodler (1853–1918)

Der Tag. 2. Fassung, 1904/06

Oil on canvas, 163 x 358 cm

Gift of Alfred Rütschi, 1919

 

Hodler already had a significant body of early realistic work behind him when, in 1890, his rigorous, energetic style of expressive two-dimensionality made him one of the standard bearers of the new, trail-blazing Symbolism and consequently one of Europe’s leading artists – the outstanding monumental painter of the period. Since the opening of the Kunsthaus in 1910 his work has been at its centre; numerous large compositions and bright rapturous landscapes provide visitors with a comprehensive insight into his work.

Paul Klee Center in  Berne

 

The Paul Klee Center, which opened in 2005, is dedicated to the person, life and work of Paul Klee (1879–1940). It houses the worldwide largest collection of Klee's works. Paul Klee is regarded as one of the 20th century's most important artists

 

With about 4,000 paintings (40% of his oeuvre) by the famous painter Paul Klee, the Zentrum Paul Klee houses the largest collection of its kind. The unusual building has a wave-like structure and was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano. Apart from art exhibitions, the Zentrum Paul Klee also offers a platform for music, theatre, dance and literature.

 

The museum building was built by Italian architect Renzo Piano, a winner of several awards. He created a green island from which three hills of steel and glass arise. These contain exhibition space, a music and event hall, a children's museum as well as meeting and seminar rooms.

 

Klee's works are shown in a regularly changing, rotating selection of 120 to 150 works, always with changing themes.

 

 

 

Hans Erni Museum in Lucerne

 

 

The Hans Erni Museum not only makes the oeuvre of this doyen of Swiss art permanently accessible to the general public, it also creates a forum for encounter. The auditorium has become a popular conference venue, watched over by great thinkers ancient and modern - from Thales to Albert Einstein - depicted in Erni's impressive two-part mural. "Panta Rhei" or "everything flows" is a quotation from the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus that Hans Erni has made his motto. He discovers the principle of hope in the constant state of change and in art itself. The Hans Erni Art Shop in the Museum: originals, lithographs, books, catalogues, art cards, ceramics, scarves, etc.
