On the Horizon: Landscapes from the Collection

This exhibition features work by nearly twenty artists from the museum's collection that explore diverse approaches to depicting landscapes. Artists like Hermann Sigg, Isabel Quintanilla, Markus Raetz, and Italo Valenti portray idyllic scenes; in contrast, Paul Harcharik explores the grim impact of industrialization. Other artists including Nicolas de Staël, Maria Helena Vieira da Silva, and Zao Wou-Ki push the boundaries of traditional landscapes with wholly abstract compositions. With works spanning over fifty years, On the Horizon: Landscapes from the Collection delves into artists' varied engagements with the natural world and evolving environments.

Essay by Edward Lucie-Smith
Published by Walter Wickiser Gallery, Inc.

Readers of the important critical study are privileged to be guided by the wisdom and insights of renowned authority Edward Lucie-Smith as he explores the art of one of the major Swiss painters of our day. Hermann Alfred (H.A.) Sigg (born June 29, 1924) has employed "an impeccable means of physical presentation to make the image radically new" (Lucie-Smith). Inspired by nature, meditations, contemplations, dreams and spiritual magic, Sigg's visual poetry is a continual oscillation between the Modernist tradition and a much earlier Romantic one. Color reproductions of ninety unique and distinctive paintings, collages and sculptures, spanning Sigg's seventy-year career, populate this cogent, edifying and revelatory book.
