Fondation Beyeler

MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY MASTERPIECES
From Monet, Cézanne, Van Gogh by way of Picasso, Matisse, Klee, Giacometti to Warhol and Bacon as well as ethnographic art from Africa, Alaska and Oceania: with some 300 masterpieces from the 20th and 21st centuries, the Beyeler Collection’s main focus is on Classic Modernism.
Inaugurated in 1997 and set in an idyllic park, the museum was designed by the world-renowned architect Renzo Piano. The Fondation Beyeler, the most-visited art museum in Switzerland, owes its special appeal to its harmonious combination of exceptional art, picturesque nature and fascinating architecture. Every year, it shows up to four temporary exhibitions including projects in public spaces and just as many new presentations of the permanent collection. Recent exhibitions include “Gerhard Richter”, “Edgar Degas”, “Jeff Koons” and “Paul Gauguin”.

Current exhibitions

Passages – Landscape, Figure and Abstraction

-
The interplay between figuration and abstraction is a fascinating subject in modern art. The new presentation of the collection illustrates this by juxtaposing important paintings and sculptures from impressionism, classical modernism, and contemporary art. A walk through the history of art, the display includes many “passages” between landscapes and figures, which illustrate how figurative and abstract elements combine or collide.

Marking the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth, the Fondation Beyeler will devote an exhibition to the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. As one of the most important artists of the avant-garde movement, Mondrian shaped the evolution of painting from figuration to abstraction. His early work was influenced not only by late 19th-century Dutch landscape painting but also by Symbolism and Cubism.
