A new chapter for the Staechelin Collection – the history of an extraordinary collection
The paintings from the celebrated collection of Rudolf Staechelin (1881–1946) have recently returned to Basel, after a four-year interval in which the pictures were shown in widely acclaimed exhibitions abroad. Nineteen works of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and classic modernism went on show at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen as from August 31, 2019. The impressive paintings by Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Ferdinand Hodler, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro and Auguste Renoir are on display in a dedicated exhibition running until October 29, 2019. The pictures will subsequently be included in the periodically changing presentations of the Fondation Beyeler’s permanent collection. The works from the Rudolf Staechelin Collection are thus once again publicly accessible in Basel, marking the start of a new chapter in the collection’s eventful history. In the February 2017 issue of the Swiss arts magazine DU, you can learn all about the background to this extraordinary collection.
