Highlights of the collection
Events in the collection
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.
