During the world exhibition in Paris in 1900, Hodler received the gold medal for three of his exhibited works. By 1900 he sent over 200 exhibitions. He was now one of the leading painters in Europe and, in terms of his style and the expressiveness of his work, a typical representative of Swiss art. All of this also improved his previously rather precarious economic situation. In the same year he became a member of the Vienna and Berlin Secession, and in 1904 of the Munich Secession.
