The Cigarette by Peter Stämpfli

The Cigarette by Peter Stämpfli is featured in the catalogue of the collection of the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art, directed by Jean-Paul Ameline and entitled Narrative Figuration (Milan, 5 Continents Editions, 2017), which is in the process of being printed and will be in bookstores late November. This piece, a true celebration of daily life and masterly in its simplicity, reminds us of the interest shown in the 1960s in the everyday by one of the most eminent Swiss artists of this movement.
