The Hans Brühlmann Memorial Trail commemorates the painter Hans Brühlmann from Eastern Switzerland, a pioneer of Expressionism. He left behind more than 80 Vättner drawings. They can be found in public museums and private collections in Switzerland and Germany. Brühlmann drew from the Büel, the Joggebödali, the Mühliboda, the Matlina and the Gams. In his hatching, expressive drawing style, he embeds the village sometimes in threatening, sometimes in lovely mountain landscapes, sometimes with a "view out of the valley", sometimes with a view of the Calfeisen valley.
Here's what experts had to say about Brühlmann's drawings:
"True masterpieces of modern drawing" (Rudolf Koella), "outstanding Vättner landscapes, lines and surfaces, omissions and shades result in works of abstract modernity" (Diggelman/Simmen).
Although he was made left-handed because of his paralyzed right hand, his Vättner drawings are "among the most valuable" that modernism has produced in the field of pencil drawing (Julius Baum). "Only a few artists drew with comparable audacity at the time, Ernst Kirchner, for example" (Rudolf Koella). The St. Gallen artist Roman Signer also expressed himself in this sense. Even before the hundredth anniversary of Brühlmann's death, he suggested that Vättis should keep the artist in honorable memory.

At seven stations, a Brühlmann work from the years 1910/1911 will be juxtaposed with a double-exposed photograph by the Vättner photo artist Korinna Fröhlich from today. Additional information about the history of the village of Vättner can be found via the QR codes on the boards.
