Manet’s unique water-lily paintings are a particular highlight, a testimony to his vision of a novel, ‘all-over’ painting that exploits the entire surface of the vast panel. Also well represented is the art of the ‘Nabis’ Bonnard and Vuillard, which proved especially popular in Switzerland when it first emerged. Important pieces by pioneering Post-Impressionists such as Gauguin, Cézanne and van Gogh prepare the ground for the artistic upheavals of the early 1900s.

« The Kunsthaus and the Bührle Collection are bringing their holdings together under one roof to create an extraordinary Impressionist collection. » — Philippe Büttner, Collection Curator

When these works are joined by the Bührle Collection in the expanded Kunsthaus, the presentation will be the only one of its rank in Europe where visitors can experience, in a single place, the influence of Monet, Cézanne and others on the modern art that followed them.
