La Collection Emil Bührle Manet, Degas, Renoir, Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Modigliani, Picasso
In the spring of 2019, the Musée Maillol will exhibit masterpieces from the Emil Bührle Collection, one of the most prestigious private collections in the world. Exhibited for the first time in France, this ensemble, which was assembled between 1936 and 1956 in Zurich, provides a panorama of French art from the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century.
After an exhibition devoted to Giacometti’s oeuvre, the Musée Maillol will present the exceptional collection of the manufacturer Emil Georg Bührle (1890–1956), who was born in Germany but settled in Switzerland in 1924 and collected—mainly between 1951 and 1956—more than 600 artworks. Featuring around fifty works from the Emil Bührle Collection, the exhibition includes several modern art movements: works by the major Impressionists (Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Degas, Renoir, and Sisley) and post-Impressionist artists (Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, and Toulouse-Lautrec), works from the beginning of the twentieth century by the Nabis (Bonnard and Vuillard), the Fauves (Braque, Derain, and Vlaminck), and the École de Paris (Modigliani), and, lastly, the art of Picasso.
