' Paul Gauguin - The Prints' - 28 September 2012 to 20 January 2013
Paul Gauguin is universally celebrated as one of the founding fathers of modern painting. What is far less known, however, is that he left a relatively small but diverse and innovative repertoire of graphic works, most of them woodcuts.
The exhibition will present almost the entirety of Gauguin's graphic work, with some 60 pleates of supreme quality and the utmost rarity.
The only art museum for non-European cultures in Switzerland. It possesses an internationally renowned collection of works from Asia, Africa, America and Oceania.
Museum of Design
Design, visual communication, shaping of the environment, art, architecture, everyday culture, photography and the media.
Swiss National Museum - Landesmuseum
The permanent exhibitions at the museums present Swiss culture history from its beginnings to the present, and give an insight into Swiss identity, the country's history and culture.
The Kunsthaus Zürich (Musuem of Fine Art) houses the most important collection of modern art in Zürich. International works of significance include many paintings by Edvard Munch, Van Gogh, Picasso and leading Expressionists. There is also a significant group of works by Claude Monet and Marc Chagall.
