SEGANTINI MUSEUM

SEGANTINI MUSEUM HOUSE IN ST. MORITZ

 

Visit the collection of the painter of Engadin landscape is an other good reason for a day in St. Moritz.

 

Giovanni Segantini (1858–1899) is regarded as an important artist of Realistic Symbolism and was a great reviver of Alpine painting at the end of the 19th century. In 1894, the stateless artist moved from Savognin to Maloja in the Engadin. Segantini died unexpectedly on the Schafberg, high above Pontresina, while working on the middle section of his Alpine Triptych,  Life – Nature – Death.

In 1908, the Segantini Museum was built in St. Moritz in honour of the artist; today it houses the most comprehensive collection of works by Segantini in the world
