Voglio vedere le mie montagne (I would like to see my mountains)

This was the final wish of Giovanni Segantini, greater painter of the alpine world, voiced in a mountain hut on the Schafberg in the Engadin Valley as he parted from life in 1889. The sublime nature of the mountains, whose peaks were accessible only with huge difficulty or not at all in former times, and the sense of their closeness to heaven led in almost all the world’s cultures and religions to the idea of “holy” mountains – a tradition that continues even to the present day.

About the artist

Jonathan Bragdon was born in 1944 in Delaware, USA. Since 1979 he has been living in Amsterdam. After his studies in art therapy in Lausanne and the big success of his first solo exhibition in Cambridge, Massachusetts, he decided in 1967 to devote himself entirely to his creative work. The majority of his artworks can be located in the tradition of landscape drawing. Precise delicate or dotted lines and various hatchings characterise Bragdon’s impressive landscape portraits. With the series “Consciousness Drawings” Bragdon is extending his oeuvre and turning to nonrepresentational art in the form of abstract dynamic drawings. His work is included in several national and international collections, for instance the Stedeljik Museum in Amsterdam.
