Marc Gonthier

Robert Alfred Gonthier was born in Lausanne in 1895. For unknown reasons he was always known as Marc. Between 1913 and 1916 he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Geneva and took a wood-carving course with Pierre-Eugène Vilbert in 1914. In the middle of 1917 he travelled to Oschwand to painter Cuno Amiet, with whom he continued his training until 1919. He then returned to Lausanne and received a scholarship from the Swiss Federal Art Commission in 1920. Gonthier received this scholarship twice more, in 1931 and 1932. He also received several scholarships from the Gottfried Keller Foundation in the late 1930s. Gonthier travelled to Rome and Paris in 1920 and settled in Lausanne a year later. In 1922 he fell seriously ill, probably due to an accident in childhood. Gonthier suffered from deformation of the spine and was barely 1.50m tall. He returned to Paris in 1925 and was a regular visitor at the Louvre. He started to take part in exhibitions on a regular basis in 1928. He became a member of the GSMBA and was thus able to display his works at their exhibitions. Between 1928 and 1931 he began to produce woodcuts and etchings. In 1949, Gonthier became a member of the association “Der graphische Kreis” [The Graphic Circle]. Between 1952 and 1954 he suffered from impaired vision. He died in Lausanne in 1954. After his death, his complete collection of graphic works was bequeathed to the Swiss National Library in Bern. The Musée Jenisch Vevey held a retrospective exhibition of his works in 1992.
