French Impressionists at Museum Langmatt, Baden
One of the most important private collections of French Impressionism in Europe.

Renoir, Cézanne, Monet – the Museum Langmatt houses one of the most important private collections of French Impressionism in Europe as well as a collection of Venetian vedute from the 18th century. Rare ceramic objects and carpets from East Asia and Europe form a further focus of the collection.

Villa Langmatt was built in 1900/01 by the important Swiss architect Karl Moser as a residential building for Sidney and Jenny Brown-Sulzer, one of the founding families of BBC (today ABB). Together with the Art Nouveau villa and the spacious park, the unique art collection forms an incomparable historical ensemble. A magical time capsule in which inspired exhibitions combine the collection with contemporary art. At the same time, the museum fascinates with insights into the upper middle-class living of the Belle Époque. With changing exhibitions and multi-faceted events, the Langmatt is a house of discoveries for all generations from near and far.
