Eugène Burnand Museum

Eugène Burnand Museum

20 km from Lausanne, this single-subject museum includes a collection of almost a hundred works illustrating Eugène Burnand’s production. Along with Ferdinand Hodler, this native of Moudon was one of the most highly recognised and well-known Swiss artists of his time, in his native country and elsewhere.

A contemporary of Hodler, Anker and Biéler, Eugène Burnand (1850-1921) established his reputation by his naturalist works. Highly acclaimed during his lifetime, his paintings received many accolades in Paris. The artist therefore enjoyed the luxury of not being dependent on commissions, making a living from his art by painting what he wanted.

Although Eugène Burnand was particularly recognised for landscape painting and depictions of country life, he also excelled as a portraitist, illustrator and engraver. He also depicted some original religious subjects.

The museum’s permanent exhibition reflects his rich and varied production, with around a hundred of the artist’s works, ranging from drawings to famous particularly impressive large-scale oil paintings such as La Fuite de Charles le Téméraire, Le Labour dans le Jorat and Le Taureau dans les Alpes.
