Musée Jenish

naugurated in 1897, the Musée Jenisch in Vevey stands out by its neoclassical architecture. Initially designed as an encyclopaedic museum mixing art and science, the museum has housed the Oskar Kokoschka foundation and the Cabinet cantonal des estampes since 1989. It has gathered an important collection of works on paper throughout its history, engravings and drawings, from all periods. After transformation and renovation work in 2012, the museum now offers three temporary exhibitions per year on the lower floor: one dedicated to a young artist “mid-career”, one international exhibition and one thematic show. On the upper floor, historical collections of paintings from the 16th century to date can be admired, as well as the Kokoschka foundation space and the engravings and drawings from the collection, which are regularly rehung. Some artists shown in the past: David Hominal, Ferdinand Hodler, Albrecht Dürer, Markus Raetz, Manon Bellet, Pierrette Bloch, Rudy Decelière, Ante Timmermans, Silvia Buonvicini, Balthasard Burkhard, Denis Savary, François Bocion, Alain Huck, Olivier Saudan, Carles Valverde, Jean Otth.
