The Bauhaus Master Johannes Itten (1888–1967) is one of the protagonists of 20th century art history. The exhibition Johannes Itten & Thun: Focus on Nature documents for the first time how strongly Itten’s artistic beginnings were rooted in the city of Thun and how his experience of nature was influenced by Lake Thun and the surrounding area. Starting with Itten’s early work, the exhibition presents landscape representations up to his late work, with a series of paintings
and drawings that have never been exhibited before. In the Thun landscape, Itten has developed a concept of nature that is fundamental to his art. There is a publication accompanying the exhibition, published by HIRMER Verlag.
