Alexandre Calame and the Swiss Landscape

By Alberto de Andrés

This handsome book features an essay by noted Swiss art historian Alberto de Andrés discussing Calame's landscapes in the context of nineteenth-century trends in European art and culture, as well as thirty-eight color plates of works in the exhibition—many of which have never been published in color. It explores the work of Calame as well as that of François Diday, Barthélemy Menn, and Robert Zünd.
