The Musée Jenisch has several exhibition rooms devoted to Oskar Kokoschka. A biographical room offers an insight into the artist’s eventful life, while a cabinet of curiosities reconstructs the surroundings in which he worked in Villeneuve, Switzerland, where he settled in 1953. Painting, drawing and lithographic materials, items from the artist’s personal collection and works from his library are shown alongside his large tapestry Cupid and Psyche. Masterpieces from the collection of paintings that are especially representative of Kokoschka’s work are also exhibited regularly.

This large-scale temporary exhibition, a reconstruction of the museum’s first modern art collection, has brought together prestigious masterpieces from collections around the world that are rarely if ever shown in public.
