The Dutch Golden Age is represented by an exceptional ensemble including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Ruisdael, and Flemish and Italian Baroque by Claude Lorrain, Domenichino, Lanfranco and many others. They are followed by works of equal quality by masters from Tiepolo to Guardi representing the Venetian Settecento.

« The Kunsthaus is fortunate in its friends: more than two thirds of our collection has been donated by private individuals. » — Christoph Becker, Director

More unusual are the paintings by Post-Reformation artists in Zurich – from the portraitist Hans Aspers to Henry Fuseli, the latter an eccentric genius and leading light of European Classicism.
