Kunstmuseum Bern

Works by Paul Klee, Pablo Picasso, Ferdinand Hodler and Meret Oppenheim have made the Museum of Fine Arts Bern an institution with an international reputation. At the present time, the constantly growing and evolving collection consists of over 3,000 paintings and sculptures as well as 48,000 drawings, prints, photographs, videos and films.

The roots of the museum’s history reach back to the revolutionary ideas proliferatin towards the end of the 18th century which, in 1809, led to the founding of the State Art Collection in Bern and, in 1879, to the opening of the first museum building.

The Museum of Fine Arts Bern is the oldest art museum in Switzerland with a permanent collection and houses works covering eight centuries.

Hodler//Parallelism

More

A joint exhibition of the Kunstmuseum Bern and the Musée d’art et d’histoire de Genève.
In his lifetime Ferdinand Hodler was already one of Switzerland’s most renowned painters. After he pursued new avenues and turned away from the art that influenced him in his early years, Hodler evolved his own characteristic style that brought him international fame. The exhibition highlights Hodler’s simple, clear-cut, and effective theory of parallelism.
