Switzerland’s Fondation Beyeler modern art museum is marking its 20th anniversary this year with a series of blockbuster exhibitions, drawing from collections across Europe and America.
The Basel landmark has begun showing the first of its big ticket exhibits with 50 masterpieces by Claude Monet on loan from private collections and other renowned museums including the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Art Institute in Chicago.
From 28 May to 1 October, the Fondation Beyeler will offer a presentation of works by photographer Wolfgang Tillmans, capturing youth culture from last century to the present day.
Later, from 1 October this year until 21 January, 2018, about 100 pieces by Paul Klee will be shown, including some of his rarely exhibited works.
Apart from the special exhibitions, there will also be three presentations from the museum’s permanent collection, allowing visitors to learn about its founder Ernst Beyeler.
