Lausanne: Gustave Bouchet′s exhibit happening now


Author: Nikita Kosmin





If you're a fan of beautiful things, the work of Gustav Boucher will undoubtedly leave a mark. The exhibition of Gustav Boucher's works, currently taking place in Lausanne, is one of the most tempting things to  on your to-do list if you don't want to miss the naked truth. 


Boucher's work was influenced by two major art movements: Futurism and Purism. We'll put it to you that Purism, an art movement that seeks to do away with anything decorative or inauthentic, is probably the most appealing of them all if you’re as tired of the best Facebook has to give as we are. Futurism, though an independent branch, also has purist notions: as we evolve, we discard the chaotic baggage of previous centuries and last year's versions of ourselves and become more transparent, sincere and radiant thanks to being just as we are. 


Looking at Bouchet's honest, calm, and balanced paintings, we wonder if, over time, we'll also become purer, unfiltered versions of ourselves, sincerely guided by our passions - or will the era of facades and nothingness in the room take hold of us as well?


This exhibit in Lausanne with its clear Picassean influence but without Picasso’s Bosch is undoubtedly worth your attention.
