Alice Bailly is a Swiss artist who was born in 1872 in Geneva. She died of tuberculosis in Lausanne in 1938, aged 65. Bailly is acknowledged for her original interpretations; she is known as a member of the Swiss avant-garde art movement.
Bailly's paintings reflect her involvement in the Cubism, Fauvism, and Dada art movements. When she moved to Paris, she became acquainted with other artists of the time, Francis Picabia, Fernand Leger, and Juan Gris. Their influence is visible in her artwork. During this period, she discovered the bold and vibrant colors of the Fauve artists. Her paintings from this period were exhibited in the Salon d'Automne alongside paintings by famous artists Henri Matisse and Andre Derain.
Geneva Harbour 1915 and Landscape at Orsay 1912 (also known as The Green Tree) are two of her famous oil paintings from this period.
In 1912 she traveled extensively throughout Europe, exhibiting her work. However, at the outbreak of World War 1, she returned to Switzerland and began work on her "wool paintings." Over eight years, she created around 50 colorful art pieces using this unique medium. During the latter period of her life, she also created several large murals for the Lausanne Theater. The Alice Bailly Foundation continues to support young Swiss artists financially, and she is a prominent female artist of the 20th century.
