The four Barraud Brothers

The four Barraud brothers are among the best kept art secrets of and in Switzerland. They were born in La Chaux-de-Fonds.

François (1899-1934), Aimé (1902-1954), Charles (1897-1997) and Aurèle (1903-1969) are four talented painters from one family.

They show that there is more quality and variety in modern Swiss art than the Giacometti’s and Ferdinand Hodler’s.

Their paintings are important works of European realism in the Interbellum (1920s and 1930s).

The museum MORE in Gorssel, The Netherlands, shows many of their paintings in the exhibition The Barraud Brothers. (Source and further information:
