Casimir REYMOND (1893 -1969)
Casimir Reymond’s painting is strong and graphic, its colors bright and acidic, its bold composition and its expressionist technique.
Swiss painter and sculptor, native of Vaulion, in the Jura vaudois, Casimir Reymond studied at the School of Fine Arts in Geneva.
We owe him a sculpture of Mary at St Paul’s Church in Vienna and many of his sculptures that adorn the city of Lausanne.
He stayed in Paris from 1929 to 1932 where he participated in several Parisian exhibitions
He received the Wilhelm Gimmi Prize in 1969 shortly before his death.
From 1932, he taught at the cantonal school of drawing and applied art in Lausanne, which he directed in 1933-1934 and from 1945 to 1955.
