Segantini 21: Lai Tigiel

Pascoli alpini – Alpweiden, 1893-1895: (169 × 278 cm, Öl auf Leinwand, Kunsthaus Zürich).
From his hut on Alp Tussagn, Segantini climbs even higher up to Lai Tigiel in a 2 1/2-hour walk. There he worked on the paintings «Alpenweiden», «Die Strafe der Wollüstigen» and «Die bösen Mütter».


Quote from Giovanni Segantini's diary: "However, I spent some summers high [...]. It was here that I studied nature most deeply in its most vivid forms and in its brightest color. It was here that I wrote my first letters about art."

In 1994 he painted the painting "The Evil Mothers" on the plateau. As a result, Segantini is said to have decided to leave Savognin. Bice explains in her short biography: "He had grown tired of the area and was afraid of repeating himself." He took the still unfinished painting "Alpweiden" with him to the Engadine, where he completed it in 1895.

In audio; The artist continues to strive upwards. He spends all summer and winter on Alp Tussagn to paint. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.
