Guided tour of the SILS MUSEUM and the special exhibition "The picturesque mountain".
The former Andrea Robbi Museum continues to be dedicated to the work of the painter and draughtsman from Sils. In future, however, exhibitions will increasingly focus on local and regional cultural themes. One example is the current special exhibition:
The picturesque mountain
The exhibition presents mountain landscapes in the form of paintings, watercolours and drawings by artists who either come from the Grisons mountain region and/or in whose work the Upper Engadin or Bergell play an important role.

The landscapes of the Engadin and Bergell have long exerted a great attraction on painters. Their works are an expression of their connection with the mountain world, their enthusiasm for glowing peaks and reflective lakes, and their painterly adventures. A celebration of colour that offers surprising insights into the different perspectives on the alpine landscape of artists who are rooted here and those who have travelled here.
For a long time, the Engadin and Bergell landscapes have exerted a great fascination on painters. Their works express a deep connection with the mountains, their enthusiasm for the bright mountain peaks, the views reflected in the lakes and their pictorial adventure. This feast of colours offers us a surprising insight into the different perspectives of the Alpine panorama proposed by the artists from home and abroad.
