Ferdinand Hodler // Swiss Symbolist (1853 - 1918)

Below are a selection of paintings by the Swiss Symbolist Ferdinand Hodler (1853 - 1918). I stumbled upon Hodler's diverse body of work this week and immediately fell in love with it - Hodler's paintings seem to me both raw and refined, realistic and surrealistic - at times, similar to the work of Walton Ford. Anyway, below is a sampling of Mr. Hodler's work. You can learn more about the artist at the official Musėe d'Orsay website.
