John-Francis Lecoultre

The Villa presents a selection of the Grammonts by John-Francis Lecoultre (1905-1990). The painter had similar beginnings to Le Corbusier (same origin, same courses at the Art School in La Chaux-de-Fonds, same Parisian dreams), but he returned to Switzerland, to Montreux and continued to paint all his life. The exhibition contributes to highlight this outstanding pastellist, a master of Swiss painting.
