Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends of art, Welcome to the ANDRÉ EVARD homepage! From my deep admiration for the Swiss artist, I have dedicated myself to the project to reveal this pioneer of Swiss modernism to the art world.

Welcome to the ANDRÉ EVARD homepage! From my deep admiration for the Swiss artist, I have dedicated myself to the project to reveal this pioneer of Swiss modernism to the art world. I first came into contact with this pioneering painter in the 1970s and a lifelong fascination began. A few years later, I managed to acquire large parts of his estate. Since the establishment of the messmer art gallery in Riegel am Kaiserstuhl, two monographic exhibitions on André Evard have already taken place. The Evards Collection in the Messmer Foundation preserved and refurbished. We present selected works by the artist from time to time in the GALERIE MESSMER connected to the Kunsthalle. I found my great passion for concrete-constructive art through André Evard’s work. In order to promote this special art direction, I dedicated a € 10,000 art award to André Evard in 2009 that is aimed at contemporary artists. In the past few years, around 2,500 artists have been presented to the general public. With best regards, Jürgen A. Messmer
