Before the Reformation

On the occasion of its 100th anniversary, the museum focuses on the art of Graubünden before the Reformation (1530). The exhibition also devotes itself to the historie of the Villa Planta, the museum’s location since 1919. The historical objects are not shown themselves, but on the basis of photographs by the artist Florio Puenter. The exhibition presents works from various artistic and cultural areas that show the artistic richness of Grisons, including archaeological finds from the Calancatal, the marble statues of the St. Johan monastery in Müstair, reliquaries from the Chur Cathedral Treasure House and Gothic frescoes from Waltensburg. In the exhibition they are reproduced in full size by means of black and white photographs, which emphasizes the aesthetic quality of the selected objects.
