Graphische Sammlung ETH Zürich

The Graphische Sammlung ETH Zürich is one of the largest collection of prints and drawings in Switzerland. It contains some 160,000 high-quality artworks on paper from the 15th century to the present day. From Albrecht Dürer to Louise Bourgeois, from Rembrandt van Rijn to Silvia Bächli, and from Francisco de Goya to Andy Warhol – important national and international names are represented as well as young artists.
The collection has grown over the decades as a result of continuous purchases and numerous gifts and has become far more than the study collection which was originally intended. Today it continues to grow as it absorbs the latest national and international trends, particularly with regard to contemporary art. In addition to a main area of focus in the field of the old masters, it also includes sizeable groups of works comprising Swiss prints and drawings from the 19th to the 21st century.
