Inspiring motives

The more frequently we communicate digitally, the greater the pleasure of receiving a handwritten card. But it’s not just the thought that counts—a greeting card is also a feast for the eyes. This is certainly true of the high-quality cards featuring selected works by Picasso, Klee, Giacometti, Lichtenstein, Matisse, Miro, Ernst, Rousseau and Rothko from the collection of the Fondation Beyeler. Representing a wealth of different styles and movements, from abstract expressionism and classic modernism to Pop art, they offer a suitable artistic motif for every recipient.

Henri Rousseau’s position as a painter in Paris around 1900 might be summed up by the title of this work: The Hungry Lion Throws Itself on the Antelope. Having been the butt of ridicule and scorn in the late 1800s, at the start of the 1900s Henri Rousseau found himself a revered artist of the avant-garde. His breakthrough came in 1905 with The Hungry Lion.
