Since its inauguration in October 1997, the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen, near Basel, has become one of the world’s top destinations for modern art, a result of the combination of a unique collection, fascinating architecture, and a variety of world-class exhibitions. The reputation of Hildy and Ernst Beyeler’s collection, which features milestones of twentieth-century art as well as tribal works from Africa, Alaska, and Oceania, has been steadily growing ever since due to new acquisitions of important works.

On the tenth anniversary of the Fondation Beyeler, this complete, up-to-date catalogue takes stock of the museum’s collection, which today contains more than two hundred paintings and sculptures. In addition to some of Ernst Beyeler’s own comments, this publication offers a thorough overview of twentieth-century art, including a valuable, personal insight into the life and work of a collector, museum founder, and patron, who to this day remains passionately involved in art.
