About the institution

Basel's Fine Arts Museum makes a strong showing in Upper Rhenish and Flemish paintings and drawings from 1400 to 1600 and in 19th to 21st-century international art. The museum has the world's largest collection of works by the Holbein family. The Renaissance collection includes major works by Witz, Cranach the Elder, Grünewald and others. Paintings by Böcklin, van Gogh, Gauguin and Cézanne feature strongly in the 19th-century exhibits. The focal points of 20th-century art on display are Cubism (Picasso, Braque, Léger), German Expressionism and American art since 1950.
