Hidden Valuables: Early-Period Meissen Porcelains from Swiss Private Collections
Musée Ariana, Geneva, 7 February — 6 September 2020

Switzerland is well-known for its host of remarkable collections of eighteenth-century European porcelain. Exemplary representatives of these are such extraordinary collector personalities as Albert Kocher or Dr Marcel Nyffeler. A number of these magnificent collections can be found today in Switzerland’s renowned institutions, and the ‘white gold’ from Saxony still fascinates Swiss connoisseurs. This exhibition is dedicated to their passionate collecting and exceptional treasures, while the catalogue is enriched with essays by renowned art historians and porcelain experts.
