The Betty and David Koetser Foundation and the Ruzicka Foundation have supplied a dazzling selection of Dutch paintings, Italian Baroque and Venetian Settecento art, while French sculptures come from the Werner and Nelly Bär Foundation. The biggest contributor in terms of long-term loans – with more than 600 items – is the Kunstfreunde Zürich. This group of patrons has been acquiring works of art for over a hundred years, filling gaps in the collection that the Kunsthaus is unable to fill itself. The paintings and sculptures held by the Alberto Giacometti-Stiftung are among our most popular works. Looking to the future, the Emil Bührle Collection, the Merzbacher Collection and the Fondation Hubert Looser will be moving into the Kunsthaus extension when it opens.
