The collection of Swiss painting ranges from the landscapes of Koller and Zünd and the fantasy worlds of Böcklin and Welti through the Jugendstil of Augusto Giacometti and Vallotton to the Realism and avant-garde art of the 20th century and the very latest trends in our own time. Especially noteworthy are the groups of works by Ferdinand Hodler and Giovanni Segantini.
