On the Trail of Chagall and Kandinsky at the Carlton Hotel in St. Moritz

Guests at the hotel Carlton St. Moritz can gain inspiration from two great painters, Chagall and Kandinsky. The hotel’s two Junior Suites are dedicated to the Russian artists, and those who wish to try their hand at artwork will be provided with a brush and easel by the hotel.

The Kandinsky Suite is a luxurious 65 m² junior suite with a combined sleeping and living area that makes art lovers’ hearts beat a little faster. The walls are said to have been painted by the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky . When he was a guest at the hotel, he awoke from a dream filled with sudden creative inspiration. With no paper to hand, he began to paint the pictures in his head on the hotel walls. This story that has been handed down is truly fascinating. Perhaps Kandinsky’s murals will give you private or professional inspiration too.

The Chagall Suite is a luxurious 65 m² junior suite with a combined sleeping and living area that offers every guest who stays here a quite unique atmosphere. The walls are covered with works by Marc Chagall, the French artist of Russian origin. These are no ordinary paintings squeezed into frames. On the contrary, these reproductions of Chagall’s originals have been painted directly onto the walls of the room. The matching furniture and curtains give the room the unique feel of an artist’s studio.

For those travelers looking for artistic inspiration, guests can look no further than the Carlton St. Moritz.
