Breitbild

Another rap-group from Graubünden/Grisons, Breitbild is also part of the Bauers collective. Like the other members of the collective, their lyrics are also in Swiss German.
Breitbild started off in 1999 as a loose group of about 15 teens that learned to know each other through their music, parties and mutual friends and that liked to make music together. Currently, the group has five members that are accompanied by a live band during performances.
The group released their first EP in 2002, and their first album in 2004. In the years to come, they released four more albums, each more successful than the one before.
The group received multiple awards for their work, including a culture promotion price of the city of Chur and an award for their music video “Nacht” at the film festival of Solothurn

Portrait d'une artiste dessinant d'après une antiquité. Jean-François Sablet (French, 1745-1819). Oil on canvas.

Among Jean-François Sablet’s early portraits are those of Charles de Bourbon, Comte d'Artois, as Colonel General of the Swiss and Grison Guards (1774) and Charles-Henri, Comte d'Estaing. He also painted genre scenes and mythological scenes. In 1791 he left Paris for Rome to join his brother. While there he concentrated on landscapes, also depicting people in local costume.
