Anker and childhood

Discover "Anker and the children* the next exhibition from February 1 to June 30, 2024, every day from 10am to 6pm at the Fondation Pierre Gianadda.

The Fondation Pierre Gianadda invites the public to rediscover this artist’s work dedicated to childhood.

Anker, an exemplary father deeply distressed by the loss of two young children, was all the more interested in his offspring and their development by maintaining a warm, affectionate relationship with them. Childhood fascinated him, and he represented it in his most diverse activities. It’s a theme in which he excels, and one that has made him a leading ambassador for children’s portraits in the art world.

Matthias Frehner, exhibition curator and specialist in Swiss painting, highlights this universe.
