PLANQUE’S “EYE”

HANS BERGER

Exhibition

28 March - 6 September 2015

Attached to simple country values, modest and hard-working, Swiss painter Hans Berger (1882-1977) was, for Jean Planque, the embodiment of the genuine artist.

In the museum’s new exhibition space, the chapelle des Pénitents blancs, the musée Granet invites you to discover 30 or so extraordinary, powerful and colourful works by this painter who often drew his inspiration from France and his travels to Paris, Brittany and Provence, where he befriended the painter Auguste Chabaud.

Some of your paintings are as beautiful and dense as Van Gogh’s.
Jean Planque to Hans Berger

Despite living in seclusion in the countryside around Geneva, Hans Berger was quickly taken up by leading Swiss art dealers and collectors. Jean Planque recommended him to galleries and praised his merits with the same passion as he championed Picasso and Dubuffet.
