The artist Giovanni Segantini was a leading member of the European avant-garde of his day. He was hailed as an 'innovator', a 'prophet' and a 'revolutionary': in an obituary one critic called him a "Secession in his own right." His work was to be seen in public and private collections alike, and had a major effect on art in Europe at the time. Even the Futurists cited him as a role-model. At present there are no monographs of Segantini in print. This publication will fill this gap and offers the public a new opportunity to see important paintings and drawings by this artist, including his famous triptych Werden - Sein - Vergehen (La Vita - La Natura - La Morte). With an in-depth essay on the artist's oeuvre - from his early genre paintings, influenced by Realism, right up to his symbolic depictions of Nature in a Divisionist style - this publication is an up-to-date, comprehensive monograph on Giovanni Segantini.
