Segantini - The atelier in Maloja
Segantini: “Painter of light”
Giovanni Segantini’s atelier is located in Maloja, the alpine village where the famous painter lived from 1894 until his death. The studio is across from the Hotel Schweizerhaus, on the way to the Belvedere lookout tower. The small round building is in front of the Segantini family chalet. Designed by the artist himself, the 70-meter in diameter studio is a true-to-scale wooden model of the Engadin Pavilion, constructed for the 1900 Paris World Exhibition. It was designed to display a huge picture of the Bergell and Engadin countryside on its 220-meter long wall. The work remained unfinished, but gave the impetus for the alpine triptych. The three paintings are the culmination of Giovanni Segantini’s artistic work, and are now on display at the Segantini Museum in St. Moritz.
