Artists from the Protestant northern Netherlands as well as from Catholic Flanders are represented: Jan Brueghel (I), Pieter Brueghel (II), David Teniers (II) and Catarina Ykens (I), Hendrick Avercamp, Jan van Goyen, Aert van der Neer and Adriaen Coorte.
Just as the works from the Bührle, Merzbacher and Looser collections in the extension building represent private collecting as opposed to institutional collecting, the 45 works from the Knecht Collection illustrate this aspect in the Moser Building. A comparison with the Dutch and Flemish paintings from the Kunsthaus collection, especially from the Ruzicka and Koetser Foundations, which are also on view, is recommended.
A catalogue of the collection is available from the museum shop.
