Alexis Forel graveur

This exhibition presents for the first time the prints collected by former chemist Alexi Forel (1852–1922), alongside with the etchings that he created.

The exhibition brings together about forty prints, among the most beautiful prints by the artist, presented for the first time at the Jenisch Vevey Museum. Three themes guide the installation: Parisian urban views, the rural landscapes of Brittany, and the trees of the Vaud countryside. They reflect the various journeys taken by the artist, between France and Switzerland, between 1881 to 1890.

Forel's etchings are contrasted with works of similar subjects from the collection (Rembrandt, Félix Buhot, Francis Seymour Haden and Charles-François Daubigny). The exhibition also benefits from loans of several matrices and preparatory drawings from the Alexis Forel Museum.
