8. Jean-Frédéric Schnyder: Swiss Institute
He’s one of the great painters of our time. Schnyder’s show at the Swiss Institute won’t transform painting, but boy are those small landscape paintings ever great to look at. As I mentioned in my review of the show earlier this year, the paintings employ a certain amount of sentimentality yet lack the preciousness that defines much of today’s kitsch.
