The Lion Is Hungry

Just like the hungry lion throws itself onto the Antilope in Henri Rousseau's painting, at the Fondation Beyeler we also feel a powerful hunger. We are hungry for art! Especially in tumultuous times like these, it is nice to remember how exciting and fascinating art is. The new collection presentation shows a selection of legendary paintings and sculptures in eight rooms- all of them masterpieces of classical modernism or contemporary art. Melancholy is usually at the beginning of creativity, and the magnificent works that are now once again on show at the Fondation Beyeler bear witness to this.
