LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND – With over a hundred works, Au fil des collections, from Tiepolo to Degas sheds new light on the rarely shown collection of the Fondation de l’Hermitage. Focusing on the museum’s masterpieces (including Tiepolo, Bocion, Sisley, Degas, Vuillard, Vallotton, Valadon, Braque and Magritte), the exhibition brings these works face to face, in an innovative dialogue, with other gems from public and private Swiss collections, often being exhibited for the first time. The display begins with a room devoted to the Tiepolo family, whose members were among the greatest artists of 18th-century Venice. The drawings kept at the Hermitage are brought together with pieces from other collections to highlight the graphic genius of this famous family of creators. On exhibition through 20th May.
