Ferdinand Hodler is considered as the best-known Swiss painter of the 19th century. Hodler is known for his portraits and nature and landscape images, especially those of the Swiss mountains and lakes. Hodler’s paintings had a major influence on Switzerland’s picture and perception of itself. At the same time, he was one of the most important representatives of the transition from the 19th century to modernism. The Fondation Beyeler in Riehen (Basel, Switzerland) currently presents a comprehensive exhibition of the late work of Ferdinand Hodler. The show has been organized in conjunction with the Neue Galerie in New York and is curated by Ulf Küster (Fondation Beyeler) and Jill Lloyd (Neue Galerie). In this video, Ulf Küstler provides us with a guided tour of the exhibition. He presents highlights of the show and talks about the life and work of the artist. (This video is an excerpt. The full-length versions in English and German language are coming soon on this page. They are already available on Fondation Beyeler’s YouTube channel.).

The exhibition at Fondation Beyeler, which focuses on the late work of the Swiss painter Ferndinand Hodler, comprises some 80 works and includes loans from renowned Swiss and American private collections and major national and international museums. The show is complemented by a extensive supporting program such as lectures, readings, and a dance performance.

--------------------------

 

Some of the iconic winter landscapes by Pieter Bruegel the Elder are more than just fine examples of sixteenth-century Dutch art. Paintings such as Bruegel’s Hunters in the Snow (1565) also serve as vivid evidence for the ‘Little Ice Age’, a period of cold climate conditions and glacier advances in Europe and elsewhere that lasted from the late Middle Ages until the nineteenth century.

 

There has been quite some debate over the years about the precise onset and the physical causes of this extended cold spell, with one school of thought favouring low solar activity during the ‘Maunder Minimum’ and another the cooling effect of big volcanic eruptions.

 

A paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters may put the solar-trigger hypothesis at rest. Gifford Miller of the University of Colorado in Boulder and his colleagues suggest that the Little Ice Age began abruptly between 1275 and 1300 AD following four large sulfur-rich explosive eruptions, most likely in the tropics, over a mere 50-year period.
