Beyeler Fondation

Highly recommended
Basel-born gallery owner Ernst Beyeler had architect Renzo Piano design this museum in 1997 to show off his collection of 20C paintings and sculptures. The exhibition has 200 masterpieces that together give an overview of modern art. All the major movements of the period are represented: post-Impressionism and Cubism (Cézanne, Van Gogh, Picasso), Abstract art (Kandinsky), Abstract Expressionism (Rothko), Pop Art. Pride of place is given to the sculptures by Swiss artist Giacometti and Monet's Water Lillies.
