Central to the exhibition are French artists, the founding fathers of modernism. As a prelude, two rooms will explore the role of the French schools in the history of European art. One will focus on portraits, the other on the influence of Romanticism and realism on the emergence of modern art early in the 20th century: Nabis; Fauves; and the Paris School. The exhibition will also shed light on the history of the collection itself, reflecting the tastes of its Swiss owner. The collection will eventually find a new home at the Kunsthaus Zurich extension, in 2020.
This important collections of 19th and early 20th-century art was acquired largely between 1951 and 1956 by industrialist Emil Georg Bührle (1890-1956). They are exhibited at L'Hermitage in the setting of a 19th century residence similar to that of their collector.
In fact, the Hermitage is the former residence the Bugnion family. Jean-Robert Bugnion and his wife Jackie, AIC members, will be attending this event. Jean-Robert has offered to recount some of the hisory of the porperty and foundation.
