After a four-year absence, Rudolf Staechelin’s (1881–1946) renowned collection of paintings has finally returned to Basel. After a first concentrated exhibition showing a series of highly successful dialogues with masterpieces from the Beyeler Collection, the nineteen impressionist, post-impressionist and classical modern works will be presented at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen near Basel from 26 October onwards. These remarkable masterpieces by Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Ferdinand Hodler, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro and Auguste Renoir will be on display in new and surprising combinations alongside groups of works from the Beyeler Collection until 5 January 2020. Particularly deserving of mention is the gallery showing works by Hodler and Mark Rothko, highlighting how Hodler’s idea of parallelism in abstract expressionism was later taken up elsewhere. The new display of the Foundation’s collection will also incorporate works by, for instance, Louise Bourgeois, Wolfgang Tilmanns, Roni Horn, Georg Baselitz, Richard Serra and Alberto Giacometti.
