Kunsthaus

The Kunsthaus in Zürich holds a representable collection of 19th and 20th century Swiss painting. Of particular note are the groups of works by Ferdinand Hodler.
Hodler depicted the world in contemplation of infinity.

I love Hodler and drag a huge poster of one of his paintings everywhere I live. Now I have seen the original for the first time since 1993 and I am still fascinated.

Kusthaus also have five fantastic van Gogh they forgot to mention - although some are still privately owned. They have so much good art that I almost over-dosed.
