Treasures from the Fondation des Treilles
21.01 – 29.05.2022
In early 2022 the Fondation de l’Hermitage will be privileged to host Switzerland’s first exhibition featuring a selection of the greatest masterpieces from the Fondation des Treilles, based in the southern French village of Tourtour. Created by the visionary patron Anne Gruner Schlumberger (1905-1993), this collection includes works by Hans Arp, Georges Braque, Victor Brauner, Jean Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Paul Klee, François-Xavier Lalanne, Henri Laurens, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso and Takis. The Lausanne exhibition will feature around a hundred paintings, drawings, engraving, sculptures and objects, offering visitors a unique opportunity to admire these treasures outside their usual setting and to explore the taste, personality and artistic friendships of one of the 20th century’s most illustrious collectors.
