Swiss artists continue to conquer the global art scene from New York to Zurich, as more and more works by Swiss artists are incorporated into important private and institutional collections. The Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the Pushkin Museum in Moscow exhibit paintings by Ferdinand Hodler as part of their permanent collections. The Art Institute of Chicago and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, as well as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, hold works by Félix Vallotton, Max Bill and Alberto Giacometti.
Christie’s yearly sale of Swiss art, held at the Kunsthaus in Zurich since 1995, has set numerous world auction records for Félix Vallotton, Giovanni Segantini, Giovanni Giacometti and Frank Buchser, as well as for post-war and contemporary Swiss artists such as Richard Paul Lohse, Verena Loewensberg, Marc-Antoine Fehr, Italo Valenti and Fischli/Weiss.
The Swiss Art sale features paintings, sculptures and works on paper by Swiss artists from the early-19th century until today, with a focus not only on Impressionism and Expressionism, but also on Concrete as well as Contemporary art.
