This is a unique chance to see works from two remarkable private Swiss collections. It pays tribute to two pioneering supporters of modernism, Rudolf Staechelin (1881 1946) and Karl Im Obersteg (1883 1969), industrialists and businessmen, close friends, and enthusiastic champions of impressionist, post-impressionist, and school of Paris artists. Gauguin to Picasso , Masterworks from Switzerland features over sixty celebrated paintings from their collections, created during the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth century by twenty-two world-famous artists. Masterpieces include Paul Gauguin's Nafea faa ipoipo ( When will you Marry? ) (1892), the most expensive work of art ever sold, Vincent van Gogh's Daubigny's Garden (1890), Pablo Picasso's double-sided canvas Femme dans la loge / Buveuse d'absinthe (1901), and Marc Chagall's three monumental Rabbi portraits.
