Masterpieces by Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Manet Return to Winterthur

23 March 2024 – 5 January 2025 | Villa Flora

Vincent van Gogh
Le Café de nuit à Arles, 1888

In spring 2024, the Kunst Museum Winterthur celebrates the long-awaited reopening of the unique collection of Hedy and Arthur Hahnloser in Villa Flora with the exhibition Bienvenue! After ten years, the masterpieces now return to the comprehensively renovated home of the collectors in a new presentation. 

Featuring works from the Hahnloser Collection and a selection of loans, the presentation traces the advent of French modernism from Impressionism and Postimpressionism to the Nabis and Fauves. Alongside reputable artistic pioneers such as Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne, works by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Édouard Manet, and Auguste Renoir are presented with bodies of works by the Hahnlosers’ artist friends from the circles of Pierre Bonnard, Félix Vallotton, Odilon Redon, and Henri Matisse. Sculpture is also included, with a significant selection of works by Auguste Rodin and Aristide Maillol.

This exhibition celebrating the reopening of Villa Flora allows visitors to experience turn-of-the-century avant-garde art in unusual concentration and quality. It will now be possible to experience the ground-breaking Winterthur spirit for French modernism, particularly the unusual commitment of Hedy and Arthur Hahnloser, in the place where this first-class collection was created.
