Inspired by traditional costume

Whether in Romanticism or Art Nouveau, in the yearning for rural life in the 1930s or in the modern video art of Pipilotti Rist, traditional costume has always held incredible fascination for Swiss artists as a motif. A colourful collection in Solothurn now features around 200 Swiss works of art on this theme.

“The splendour of traditional Swiss costume in the arts”: Solothurn Art Museum, until 7 January 2018.
