Segantini Museum St. Moritz
1 August 2021
The appreciation that Giovanni Segantini (1858-1899) and his art enjoyed found expression in the Museum in St. Moritz.
The architect Nicolaus Hartmann (1880-1956) based his design on the monumental pavilion that Segantini had created to house his Engadina panorama of large-scale paintings at the Paris World Exhibition in 1900. The building, with its mighty dooms, looks like a mausoleum.
To mark the centenary of the death of Segantini in 1899, the museum was completely renovated and further extended. The most recent renovation and expansion took place in 2019.
