The Foundation E.G. Bührle Collection
Geniuses such as Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Picasso stand out here. Are you going to miss it?
During the 1920s, the popular industrialist Emil Bürhle moved to the city of Zurich to start collecting works by very famous painters such as Monet, Courbet, and other great impressionist artists. As years passed by, this collection of artwork resulted in Switzerland's largest private art exhibition, which is currently situated in Bürhle's old house in the south of the city, and is open to the public. Over the three floors, you can do a tour that will guide you through the numerous trends in the history of art: on the ground floor, you'll find works between the 16th and 19th centuries, among which Van Gogh and Renoir appear. On the first floor, you'll find an important 20th-century exhibition with paintings signed by Picasso and Derain; and on the top floor, you'll go to a real journey through time by observing religious works from the 12th to the 16th centuries. This is a must!
