Kunsthaus Zürich

Master Drawings
100 Years of the Prints and Drawings Collection

23 January – 19 April 2015

In 2015, the Collection of Prints and Drawings of the Kunsthaus Zürich celebrates its 100th birthday. The first ‘Inventory of the hand drawings and prints collection’ was drawn up in 1915. At the last count the Prints and Drawings Collection of the Kunsthaus Zürich had grown into an institution of considerable proportions, with well over 90,000 works on paper. The 37,000 drawings include masterpieces by Raphael and Dürer, Fuseli, Turner, Hodler, Cézanne, Picasso and Giacometti. Acquisitions in the fields of drawing, prints, photography, film, video, multiples and installation by artists including Jorinde Voigt, Urs Fischer, Aleksandra Mir, Erik van Lieshout and others bring the overview right up to date.

Working with a team of scholars, its long-serving curator has selected the master drawings from six centuries. A representative publication, featuring full-page colour illustrations of each drawing together with a commentary, is a highlight in a long series of collection catalogues from the Kunsthaus.
