HATJE CANTZ

Ferdinand Hodler


During the last years of his life, Ferdinand Hodler (1853–1918) made significant advances in his painting, creating some of his most important and touching masterpieces. Working in series and variations, he gave new, liberated form to some of his life’s great themes: the beauty of the Swiss mountains and lakes, his fascination with women, self-scrutiny and confrontation with death. This is the first publication to provide an extensive overview of Hodler’s late works from the years 1913 to 1918. It surveys the self-portraits, the famous and extremely moving series of paintings addressing the suffering and death of his lover, Valentine Godé-Darel, and many gorgeous panoramas of the Alps and Lake Geneva, painted in close-up or at a distance at various times of the day and year. A particular highlight of the period and this volume is Hodler’s monumental mural, View to Infinity.
