A comprehensive portrait
Art dealer, gallerist, collector and museum founder: Ernst Beyeler devoted his whole life to art. He was personally acquainted with great artists like Picasso and Giacometti. He was a co-founder of Art Basel and created one of the world’s most beautiful museums, in Riehen, where he also lived. In the first comprehensive biography of Ernst Beyeler, Esther Keller traces his path from running a small antiquarian bookshop to establishing the internationally renowned Fondation Beyeler. Drawing on accounts and anecdotes from family members, friends and business partners, and including previously unpublished photographs, she sheds new light on the eventful life of Ernst Beyeler.
