Rectangle and Square

Rupf Collection 2
Hermann and Margrit Rupf have created one of the most important European collections of modern art. One unusual thing about the collection is that many of the exquisite works were purchased in the year of their creation. Since the 1950s, the collection has been open to the public thanks to a foundation from Kunstmuseum Bern. The collection is still growing – the two collectors are now focusing largely on contemporary art.

"Rectangle and Square" provides a comprehensive view of the Rupf collection, displays the preferences of these private collectors, documents the activities of the foundation and is equally a wonderful presentation of one hundred years of art history.
