A Brief Encounter
Upon entering the light-flooded Foyer of bromer kunst, visitors are welcomed on their right by a large wall photography of Cuno Amiet during one of his painting sessions, receiving every visitor with a captivating look. An illustrated biography with historical photographs and short texts summarizing the eventful life of the artist is presented to the visitors on the surrounding walls. It shows the main stages of the artist’s life, with his respective companions – names such as Winston Churchill, Paul Klee, Hermann Hesse and Wassily Kandinsky are only a few among the important figures from the arts and culture community who accompanied Amiet on his personal and artistic path. This short biography takes a glimpse into the extraordinary life Amiet led, and into his artistic career, which developed parallel to the formation and evolution of modernity.
