Segantini Museum Tours and Activities
A superb display of paintings from Giovanni Segantini (1858-1899) take center stage at St Moritz’s Segantini Museum, with examples exhibited from throughout his creative career. One of Europe’s most famous 19th-century artists, the Italian painter was best known for his large-scale landscape paintings of the Alps.
The domed museum, which opened its doors back in 1908, is the handiwork of architect Nicolaus Hartmann and pays homage to the life and works of the eponymous artist. The small but artfully executed gallery serves up some of Segantini's most impressive works including the masterful alpine triptychla vita – la natura – la morte (life – nature – death), displayed in prize place in the ambient upper-floor gallery.
