Mili Weber Museum
The Mili Weber Museum does not showcase artwork, the museum and all its content is the artwork.
As soon as I enter the museum I am fascinated by the whimsical paintings and the play of light coming through the wood-framed windows of the charming chalet in Grisons style.
Delightful nature scenes with flower children and animals; striking oil paintings; a large dollhouse with minutely crafted themes of everyday life: room after room reveals furniture, walls, even floors & ceilings that provide testimony to Mili’s creativity. I’m fleetingly reminded of Swedish artist Elsa Berkow’s children’s books that I used to read to my daughters, and I learn from Museum Director Sibylla Degiacomi that indeed, Mili wrote children’s books as well. Some of the artwork by Mili’s stepsister Anna Haller (1872-1924) is also on display – talent evidently ran deep in this family.
Overlooking lake St. Moritz, the chalet is worth a visit for its location and architectural Prättigau style (in the Engiadina) alone. If you enjoy Mili’s quaint style of painting you will get a good sense of this free spirited, vividly imaginative and deeply-to-nature connected artist during a tour of the Mili Weber Museum.
