One of Europe's best art museums, the Kunsthaus is controlled by the Zürich Society of Arts and follows its history back to a general public of craftsmen established in 1787.
While it has extensive accumulations of works by a few craftsmen - a bigger number of sketches by Charles Munch than some other gallery outside of Oslo and Europe's most critical gathering of Monet's works outside of Paris.
The accentuation has dependably been on demonstrating the most astounding quality works by a craftsman over the biggest amount.
The Kunsthaus is particularly solid in Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and Modern schools, starting with the trailblazers and early Impressionists Delacroix, Corot, Courbet, and Manet.
Two of the most excellent of the expansive water lily canvases are at the focal point of the Monet show.
Both Cézanne and van Gogh are spoken to by sketches from the finish of their professions - van Gogh's painted in the last days of his life. A whole room is loaded with trademark illusory works of Marc Chagall.
