Highlights include not only the largest collection of Munch paintings outside Norway and the most comprehensive collection of works by Alberto Giacometti but also Impressionist and Classical Modernist paintings from Monet, Picasso and Chagall to Kokoschka, Beckmann and Corinth.

Pop Art from Warhol and Hamilton appears alongside artists including Rothko, Twombly, Beuys and Baselitz. Video installations and photographs by Fischli/Weiss, Pipilotti Rist and others bring the story into the 21st century.


Rarely seen

The Collection of Prints and Drawings comprises some 95,000 works on paper, including 37,000 drawings that are especially valuable because they are one-offs made by the artists themselves. Since works on paper are extremely fragile and sensitive to external influences such as light, temperature and climatic changes, they cannot be exhibited permanently. However, selected works can be viewed in the Prints and Drawings Collection study room on request.

Digitised special collections

The Kunsthaus Zürich shows selected holdings from its collections online. The digital reproduction of objects is a work in progress. Fragile and rare objects that are difficult to access in the original are given priority for publication here. Currently, works from the library, archive and collection of prints and drawing are shown.
