Musée Jenisch Vevey
Second largest art museum in the Canton of Vaud, the Musée Jenisch Vevey offers a rich program of temporary exhibitions and a permanent collection of paintings (Bocion, Courbet, Corot, Hodler, Vallotton, Picasso, Morandi, and so on.) in a neoclassical building located 15 minutes by train from Lausanne. It houses an extraordinary collection of works on paper, in particular the Cabinet cantonal des estampes, which brings together 35,000 works from the Renaissance to the present day and is therefore one of the five most prestigious collections of works on print in Switzerland. It also hosts the world's largest collection of graphic works by Oskar Kokoschka, as well as a collection of more than 10,000 drawings.
Inaugurated in 1897, the museum takes its name from the donor who made it possible, Fanny Jenisch. In a subtle dialogue between ancient and contemporary art, this institution aims to promote works on paper.
