Ferdinand Hodler's expressive figure paintings, mountain landscapes and portraits are icons of modernism. Even during his lifetime, the work of the Swiss painter (1853-1918), who helped shape Symbolism, attracted great international attention. Contemporaries saw Hodler above all as a portrayer of man, "who knows how to shape the soul through the body", according to the artist Paul Klee in 1911. What is hardly known today: Hodler's path to fame also led via Berlin.The exhibition "Ferdinand Hodler undd die Berliner Moderne" brings together around 50 paintings by Hodler from German and Swiss collections, including 30 pictures from the Kunstmuseum Bern alone, which is a cooperation partner of the show. In addition, there are further works by artists who exhibited together with Hodler in Berlin, including Lovis Corinth, Walter Leistikow, Hans Thoma and Julie Wolfthorn.
