The Alps: Chinese Ink paintings


Selection of contemporary Chinese Paintings

In 2013 is bringing a new perspective to our most emblematic landscapes, the Lavaux wine terraces and the Matterhorn, conceivable?

The Chinese painters, whose forty-odd paintings are displayed in this exhibition, express their view affirmatively. Yet their painting is rooted in the grand tradition of the classical Middle Kingdom.

Invited to Switzerland on two occasions already by "The Alps: China Ink paintings" Foundation, these twelve outstanding major artists were touched by the wild beauty of the Alpine landscapes. Last year their drawings and paintings were shown at the Rong Bao Zhai Gallery in Beijing, and were extremely favourably received. They are now on display for the enjoyment and wonder of Chillon Castle’s visitors. Discovery and re-discovery await them.

The exhibition is to discover in the Hall of Coats-of-Arms (n° 18) and in the Domus Clericorum (n° 31), every day from 9am until 7pm (last entry 6pm).
