Swiss Symbolist Painter - Ferdinand Hodler

Ferdinand Hodler, Switzerland, (1853-1918)—ArtYouhua—Self-portrait, 1912 Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918), Swiss Symbolist painter, born in Guzran, Bern, died Geneva. During his lifetime, he had achieved great success and was recognized all over Europe, but after his death, his fame declined day by day. Hodler came to the Geneva School of Fine Arts at the age of nineteen, under the tutelage of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres' pupil and Camille Corot's friend, Valderemy Manne. Rigorous study, and famous for his painting "Pupils" (1875). This is a portrait he made in the style of Holbein in Langenthal during his holiday. While painting various working workers and craftsmen—shoemakers, locksmiths, carpenters, and watchmakers—Hodler also painted some bright and clear paintings in a simple style, especially in a clean and simple manner. , may be too clear, in short, not a blunt landscape. And this is the beginning of a break with the traditional style of painting. In 1891, Hodler exhibited his work "Night" at the National Painting Society of March Square. In 1892, he attended the Salon of the Rose-Cross, hosted by a somewhat absurd prophet. In the most sensational painting of the exhibition, Disappointed People, he showed a serious disease that was rampant at the time and stunned many advanced minds: symbolism. Going to symbolism would be a disaster for some brutish people. That's what happened to Hodler at the time. He had been adept at expressing everyday situations, but now he began to create "The Chosen One" (1894): a boy kneeling in front of a miniature garden, protected by a group of angels in pajamas arranged in a semicircle , to engage in whimsical reverie. In addition, Hodler painted The Commandments (1895). This somewhat absurd myth, if not ruining our paintings, will at least make it fond of pomp. Just like what the Germanic painters did at the time. From this time onwards, the painter Hodler began to continuously create large-scale historical creations. In his later years, he began to paint some elegantly colored lake landscapes. As a painter, his fate is somewhat similar to that of the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch.
