The second largest art museum in the Canton of Vaud, the Jenisch Vevey Museum presents a rich programme of temporary exhibitions and a permanent collection of paintings - Bocion, Courbet, Corot, Hodler, Vallotton, Picasso and Morandi - in a neoclassical setting 15 minutes by train from Lausanne.
The museum also houses an extraordinary collection of works on paper, in particular the Cantonal Prints and Drawings Department, which brings together 35,000 works from the Renaissance to the present day - with creations by Dürer, Rembrandt, Tiepolo, Goya, Bonnard, Degas, Wahrol, etc. - and a large collection of works on paper. - It is one of the five most prestigious print collections in Switzerland. It also houses the world's largest collection of graphic works by the Viennese expressionist artist Oskar Kokoschka, as well as a collection of more than 10,000 drawings.
Inaugurated in 1897, the museum takes its name from the donor who enabled its creation, Fanny Jenisch. In a subtle dialogue of ancient and contemporary art, this institution's vocation today is the promotion of works on paper.
