An exhibition of over 200 original watercolour paintings never before publicly displayed in the UK, by little-known Swiss artist, Maurice André Kaspar, brought together from around the world by his grandson, René Dee, from the 3rd - 8th August 2021 at London's Bankside Gallery.
Over a 30-year period from 1914 Maurice painted iconic scenes from Geneva Old Town, where he was born, raised, schooled and worked; from the Italianate town of Carouge in the Canton of Geneva where he later lived and raised his own family, and many other small villages and towns in Switzerland, France and Italy.
Maurice André Kaspar was an architect by profession who worked for Geneva State Council and particularly interested in the complex and often beautiful architectural features of the many traditional farmhouse, manor houses, chateaux and churches throughout rural Switzerland and France at that time.
Many of his paintings are important historical records – none more so than those he painted in the 1920’s recording the Geneva district of St. Gervais alongside the River Rhone - demolished in its entirety in the early 1930’s. In 1937, Maurice became a founder member (one of 13) of what would become an important Society of multi-disciplinary artists called, La Palette Carougeoise, still in existence and a major force for the arts in Carouge.
