Swiss Alpine Flowers

Sort by

These remarkably delicate paintings form a dazzling catalogue of Switzerland’s stunning Alpine flora. Drawn from life in the mountains near Gstaad and Champéry from June to July, 1930, they document the beautiful array of blooms that flourish on Switzerland’s usually inhospitable slopes in the short summer months. The delicate ecosystem of the Alps means that many of its flower species are endangered – this collection wonderfully capturing a fragile snapshot in time.
