Picture Ballot! Reformation

29 September 2017 – 14 January 2018

This collection presentation on the Reformation unites some 60 works from the 16th to the 20th centuries. At its centre is Ferdinand Hodler’s ‘Unanimity’ in the stairwell of the Moser building. The monumental Reformation image is admirably documented, with numerous original sketches that rarely see the light of day. Selected works by Old Masters retrace the crisis of the religious image in the Reformation, while Italian Baroque paintings offer an insight into the religious art of the Counter-Reformation. At the beginning of the 19th century Zurich offers up some of the Nazarenes – a group of artists working in Rome who looked back to
the pre-Reformation church and art. Finally, the innovators of Concrete Art sought universal truths through their pure, almost Reformation-style painting.
