Lausanne Hosts an Exceptional Impressionist Exhibition

A prestigious collection from Museum Langmatt in Baden comes to the Fondation de l’Hermitage in Lausanne.

A magnificent collection of primarily Impressionist works, most of which were acquired between 1908 and 1919 by collectors Jenny and Sidney Brown, is coming to the Fondation de l’Hermitage in Lausanne for its first public display outside its home at Villa Langmatt in Baden. Forty years after the Fondation de l’Hermitage’s inaugural exhibition of works from French-speaking Switzerland, "L’impressionnisme dans les collections romandes", the Fondation presents one of the most prestigious collections of Impressionism from the German-speaking cantons. This major event celebrates the 150th anniversary of Impressionism, one of the most influential art movements that shaped the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The exhibition promises to be a visual feast, underscoring the importance of cultural exchange and the sharing of artistic treasures across regions.

Don't miss the chance to witness this exceptional collection and celebrate 150 years of Impressionism in Lausanne.

At the Foundation de l'Heritage in Lausanne until 3 November 2024.
