Segantini 21: Lai Tigiel

Pascoli alpini – Alpweiden, 1893-1895: (169 × 278 cm, Öl auf Leinwand, Kunsthaus Zürich).
Lai Tigiel
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 "Alpine Pastures", "The Punishment of the Voluptuous" and "The Evil Mothers".


Quote from Giovanni Segantini's diary: "However, I spent many a summer high [...]. It was here that I studied nature most deeply in its most vivid forms and in its brightest colors. 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 "Alpine Meadows" with him to the Engadine, where he completed it in 1895.

In audio; The artist continues to strive upwards. He spends entire summers and winters on Alp Tussagn painting. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.
