In this museum, a dense presentation of superb paintings from the Late Middle Ages to the Enlightenment spreads out over three floors, with special focusses on various themes, genres, artistic currents, techniques, etc. Again and again, works by Italian, Spanish, Dutch, German, French, English and Swiss artists are found side by side, making for a comprehensive experience of European painting. The presentation of the Sculpture Collection testifies to the importance of ancient sculpture for the art of the Renaissance and the Baroque in painting and sculpture alike. It moreover provides a striking demonstration of the degree to which sculpture and painting have inspired one another over the centuries.
