Sotheby’s Zurich Celebrates The Muses of Swiss Art in Sale to Be Held on May 30


Sotheby's Zurich sale of Swiss Art on 30th May will celebrate the muses of Swiss painting in a selection featuring the principal movements of the discipline, from Ferdinand Hodler’s masterpiece Femme joyeuse to Félix Vallotton’s realistic nudes and Daniele Buetti’s enigmatic Kate Moss. Estimated between 11 and 14 million Swiss francs, the 128-lot sale also comprises important landscapes by Vallotton and works by eminent Swiss artists from the 19th and 20th centuries, including Cuno Amiet, Albert Anker, Ernest Biéler, Augusto and Giovanni Giacometti.

Commenting on the sale, Urs Lanter, Head of Sotheby’s Swiss Art Department said: « Recent sales have witnessed an increasing interest in Swiss Art from international collectors, and most notably for works by important artists like Hodler and Vallotton, recognised far beyond the Swiss borders. We are therefore delighted to be able to present Femme Joyeuse, one of Hodler’s most impressive and beautiful figure compositions whose extraordinary quality is matched by an impeccable provenance. This masterpiece and all the other works reflect the wealth and diversity of Swiss Art and will, without doubt, generate excitement beyond traditional collectors ».
