    Parcours très intéressant dans ce magnifique jardin botanique. Le rapprochement entre peinture et nature est très bien expliqué dans les commentaires très innovants avec la reproduction de chaque tableau. Cela donne envie d'aller voir les originaux au Musée d'Art et d'Histoire. On se rend compte aussi des nombreux peintres suisses talentueux et qui restent pourtant injustement bien méconnus. Une raison de plus pour effectuer ce parcours.

    A very good didactic introduction to art, which should be taught in schools.. Parents should entice their children to open their minds to Beauty, which should not be dissociated from goodness...
