Storm and thunderstorm, piling up clouds and trees whipped by the wind - the painter Adolf Stäbli, born in Winterthur in 1842, found his dramatic motifs in nature. At a time when landscape painting was bidding farewell to the previously predominant academic-classical landscape composition, the artist struggled to renew the compositional schemes and dealt with the idea of the atmospheric landscape in numerous variations. Stäbli lived and worked for many years in Munich, where he also died in 1901. His paintings and drawings are part of the collections of Munich museums. Most of his work, however, returned to Switzerland through the art trade and purchases by the Gottfried Keller Foundation. This new monograph provides an in-depth examination of Adolf Stäblis' working methods and his systematic, compositional approach over the decades.
