The Museum Langmatt collection was significantly founded by Sidney and Jenny Brown between 1900 and 1933. The heart of the collection consists of around 50 outstanding French Impressionist paintings by artists including Cassatt, Cézanne, Degas, Gauguin, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, and Sisley. The majority of these works were acquired remarkably early, between 1908 and 1919, when Impressionism still counted as contemporary art. This unique ensemble also includes valuable French furniture from the 18th and 19th century, sculptures, drawings, textiles, silver, and porcelain, and also Chinese ceramics.
