In his “Miraculous Fishing”, executed in 1444, Konrad Witz caused an air bubble to surface on the surface of Lake Geneva. With this effect of reality, the painter ventures into a new era of landscape representation. This has not escaped this scholar John Armleder, who points out, in 2017, the same pattern on a puddle of glass. With this work entitled “À Jean-Paul”, the Geneva visual artist pays homage to his friend Jean-Paul Barbier-Mueller, founder of the museum of the same name which disappeared in 2016, and to the extremely famous altarpiece which marks a decisive pictorial milestone in the history of Western art.
