The town of La Tour-de-Peilz (canton of Vaud) is devoting an open-air exhibition to the painter and sculptor Gustave Courbet (1819-1877).

The route through the old town and along the shores of Lake Geneva shows, among other things, the painter’s last years from 1874 until his death in 1877 in La Tour-de-Peilz.

This open-air museum of the master of realism shows his works and life story and his special bond with Switzerland in the last phase of his life.
