Thematic exhibitions: Impressionism in Collections in French-Speaking Switzerland; Pointillism. In Seurat’s footsteps; Futurism. Italy confronted with modernity; The Golden Age of English Watercolours; American Impressionism 1880-1915; Impressions of the North. Scandinavian Painting 1800-1915; El Modernismo. Spanish Painting (1880-1918); etc.
Exhibitions presenting well-known public or private collections: the Museums of Athens, Barcelona, Grenoble, Liège and Lyon; the Barbier-Mueller, Gould, Planque, Weinberg Collections, etc.

From the very first exhibition on Impressionism and post-Impressionism from collections in French-speaking Switzerland, the Fondation de l’Hermitage has been very successful with the public. The well-researched and richly illustrated exhibition catalogues have contributed to establishing the Foundation’s international reputation.
