Add reminder

This exhibition pays tribute to two pioneering supporters of the arts, Rudolf Staechelin (1881–1946) and Karl Im Obersteg (1883–1969), both from Basel, who championed the work of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and School of Paris artists, providing a platform to distinguish collecting philosophies and situate them within the history and reception of Modern art. The exhibition features more than 60 celebrated paintings—masterpieces created during the mid-19th and 20th centuries by 22 world-famous artists—including Vincent van Gogh’s The Garden of Daubigny (1890), Pablo Picasso’s double-sided canvas Woman at the Theater / The Absinthe Drinker (1901), Marc Chagall’s three monumental Rabbi portraits from 1914, and Paul Gauguin’s NAFEA faaipoipo (When Will You Marry?) (1892). The Phillips Collection in the only U.S. venue for this exhibition, which marks the first occasion for these collections to be exhibited together in the U.S.
