Museum of Fine Arts Bern

The museum holds a total of over 3,000 paintings and sculptures and approximately 48,000 drawings, prints, photographs, videos and films.

Works from Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Ferdinand Hodler and Meret Oppenheim have given Switzerland's oldest art museum a world-class reputation.

The collection comprises art from the Italian Trecento (Duccio, Fra Angelico), Swiss art since the 15th century (Niklaus Manuel, Albert Anker, Ferdinand Hodler, Cuno Amiet), international painting from the 19th and early 20th centuries (Impressionism, Cubism, Expressionism, Blauer Reiter, Surrealism), with particular focus on Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky and Pablo Picasso. Both national art trends (Meret Oppenheim, Franz Gertsch, Markus Raetz) and international ones from Jackson Pollock to the present are also represented.
