The permanent collection of the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne contains many treasures, including an important work by Pierre Soulages. 


You will be greeted by a Big Locomotive before setting off on a journey through the world of Fine Arts. You will encounter angels, smiles, and one of Pierre Soulages‘ earliest works on canvas.

Peinture by Pierre Soulages dates from 1956; it is a crucial year in his career as an artist because two years earlier, Picasso’s art dealer organized an exhibition for him in New York. He has just started to simplify his artistic process by reducing colors and brushstrokes. This work represents a period of transition that ends where the form is replaced by the color, before scraping it to find the black color underneath.


Before or after the masterpieces, enjoy a stopover at Le Nabi restaurant for fresh food and good drinks (especially homemade lemonade).
