The important Swiss painter Ernest Biéler was a multi-talented artist.
At the turn of the century, Ernest Biéler was practising two styles of painting at once and, consequently, pursuing virtually two careers: one closer to his heart, tending toward Realism, and the other based on status-seeking within the Symbolist movement. Ernest Biéler's Realism was based on love for his country... In the 1890s, Modernism meant rejecting Realism in favour of a more spiritual art which, at its most colourful and decorative, became Art Nouveau. Ernest Biéler resisted Internationalism and Symbolism, which gradually disappeared from his painting. But he remained ambivalent about them for years. Torn between the two painting styles ... he ended up practising both. His contemporaries .. asked him whether he was an idealist or a realist. "An artist can aspire to be both," Ernest Biéler replied. "One does not exclude the other. ..National sentiment is not irrelevant to art."
It is worth noting that Ernest Biéler's idealism was profoundly influenced by what he called "decoration", the term used by Mauris Denis in 1890 in his Theories.

Although the artist traveled widely, he remained bound to the village of Savièse in the canton of Valais and often portrayed scenes from peasant life with a remarkable level of detail. Bieler also produced stained-glass windows for churches and Federal Building in Berne, and created the ceiling of the Municipal Theatre in Berne.

  5. I am looking for someone who can tell me more about a pair of large oil on canvas paintings by Ernest Bieler. They are signed upper right, by "E. Bieler, 1908" and are obviously commissioned works. One is a 3/4 painting of a prominent middle-aged man glasses and the other is a 3/4 painting of an elegant middle-aged woman in a lacey dress, with a string of pearls in her hair. The very ornate matched gilt gesso frames were made in Berlin. The painting of the gentleman had three knife wounds to the lower part of the painting, which were repaired poorly. Anything Bieler historians could tell me about these works- and who may have brought them to the US- would be much appreciated.
