The paintings from the celebrated collection of Rudolf Staechelin (1881–1946) are returning to Basel, after a four-year interval in which the pictures were shown (with works from the Im Obersteg Collection) in widely acclaimed exhibitions at the Museo Nacional Reina Sofia in Madrid and the Phillips Collection in Washington.
Now, from the end of August 2019, nineteen outstanding examples of Impressionism, Post- Impressionism and Classic Modernism are to be seen at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen. The paintings, by Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Ferdinand Hodler, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, and Auguste Renoir, are currently displayed together in a dedicated presentation.
Subsequently, individual pictures will be included in the periodically rehung exhibition of the Fondation Beyeler’s permanent collection. Thus the works from the Rudolf Staechelin Collection will be publicly accessible again in Basel, where a new chapter begins in the collection’s eventful history.
