With reference to major paintings and drawings, this comprehensive publication reviews the life and art of Giovanni Segantini (1858-1899), a Divisionist and Symbolist artist who was inspired by light. His urge to convey the brilliantly clear light of the high Alps led to an immense painterly development that was reflected in every phase of his career – starting with his years in Brianza, through depictions of farm life in Savognin, to the zenith of his painting, marked by the radiant luminosity of the Engadine Alps. Art-historical discussions and literary essays pay tribute to Segantini’s significance as a rejuvenator of landscape painting and a pathfinder for modern art, and give the painter of light a new place in the international history of art.
