Museum Caspar Wolf
Who is Caspar Wolf? Experience the world through the eyes of the most important Swiss landscape and Alpine painter of the 18th century. The impressive collection shows oil paintings, gouaches, drawings and engravings by this probably most famous son of Muri. From the Rococo to the pre-Romantic period - back when mountains and the Alps became fashionable. As one of the first artists ever, the Murian Caspar Wolf (1735-1783) painted the world of the Alps 250 years ago exactly as he saw it with his own eyes. The new Caspar Wolf Museum now pays tribute to this great Swiss artist with a specially designed exhibition - the most comprehensive permanent presentation of his work ever - and with changing cabinet exhibitions on various themes related to Caspar Wolf, his art, and his time.
