Presentation of the collection

Presentation of the collection Until August 10, 2014

The Beyeler Collection provides a particular insight into the art of modernism and the post-war era. It starts with late Impressionism, with important paintings by Claude Monet, and continues with characteristic groups of works by artists including Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Piet Mondrian and Jean Dubuffet.  American Abstract Expressionism is also prominently represented in paintings by Barnett Newman. The collection is also continuously expanding its holdings in the sphere of contemporary art. 

In the latest presentation of the Beyeler Collection, major new acquisitions of sculptures by Richard Serra and Franz West and photographs by Wolfgang Tillmans are on show for the first time. The presentation of works from the DAROS Collection is devoted to a group of early paintings by Cy Twombly.
