House-workshop 1939
House-workshop 2017
Highlighting built and cultural heritage

In the house-workshop, a class 2 (regional importance) historical monument, the museum highlights Swiss artists who, like the painters Italo and Vincent De Grandi, are no longer or rarely exhibited.

Lectures and concerts enrich the cultural context of these exhibitions.

Inauguration of the museum
Collection archiving the exhibitions of the two brothers

Born in vevey, settled in Corseaux, the painters Italo and Vincent De Grandi are inseparable. They share the same vision of the world and of painting, while expressing it in a distinct way.

Italo 1912-1988
Vincent 1916-2010
Italo : Celestial harvest
V De Grandi : The passage of the train
Exhibition from April 19 to July 1, 2018.
With the Wilhelm Gimmi Foundation

Born in Zurich, Wilhelm Gimmi moved to Paris in 1908. In 1940, he is forced to return to Switzerland: he chooses Chexbres, where he will paint until the end of his life. His works are kept in many museums in Switzerland and abroad.

W. Gimmi 1886-1965
W Gimmi: Cahors
Exhibition from 6.9. to 29.11. 2018
By the ACM and Archizoom of EPFL

In preparation

International style villas on the Vaud Riviera

Plans, drawings, photos and models of numerous projects show the major importance of the Lake Geneva region in the development of modern architectural and aesthetic sensibility.

From Le Corbusier in 1923 (Villa le Lac) to Alberto Sartoris in 1939 (Maison-Atelier De Grandi), including the pioneering architects Henri Robert Von Der Mühl, Dubois & Favarger, René Bonnard, Jack Cornaz, Alexandre Ferenczy and Hermann Henselmann.

Paintings by the De Grandi brothers illustrate the pictorial context of this period and their more Italian than national inspiration.

Exhibition: Inhabiting Modernity
Exhibition from 11.4. to 18.8. 2018
With the Casimir Reymond Foundation

Rediscovery of Casimir Reymond's paintings, eclipsed by his monumental sculptures, as well as his constant search for drawing, since his early childhood, as a support for his painting as well as for his small-format sculpture, in search of a real presence essential to his art.

C. Reymond 1893-1969
C Reymond: Cherry blossoms

Founders of the museum, Pierre and François, sons of Italo De Grandi, created in 2016 the Association of the Friends of L'Atelier De Grandi, a non-profit, tax-exempt institution of public interest. Its committee is voluntary.

Its members contribute to the perpetuation of the museum's built (the house-workshop) and artistic (exhibitions, conferences and concerts) heritage, as well as to that of its website. They benefit from reduced rates and other advantages.

Public and private institutions

Since its opening in 2017, the exhibitions presented at L'Atelier De Grandi have been made possible mainly thanks to the support of public and private institutions, to which we are deeply grateful.

Companies

The companies that support us, in the form of project or long-term sponsorship, are mentioned on all the museum's visuals and publications and benefit from preferential rates.

COVID CERTIFICATE

We are ready!

The COVID-19 is still playing tricks on us...
The latest one involves the obligation for each visitor
(except children) to present their COVID certificate at the entrance of the museums.
Thus the wearing of a mask in the museum is no longer officially compulsory: we prefer to recommend it, however, since people can be carriers of the virus, even if they have been vaccinated.

We are equipped and looking forward to welcoming you
AND scanning your COVID certificate, on paper or on your smartphone.
