Located in the heart of Geneva’s old town, the Schifferli gallery, formerly the de Rosemont gallery, was founded in 1967 by Boris Niederer. Today, under the direction of Patrick Pouchot-Lermans, the gallery specializes in paintings and works on paper from the major artistic movements of the 20th century. In an intimate space, the Schifferli gallery proposes a selection of works by some of the best painters of the modern era, including Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Paul Klee, Vassily Kandinsky, Alexej von Jawlensky, and Juan Gris, among others. The surrealist movement is represented by artists such as Joan Miró, Hans Bellmer, Max Ernst, Victor Brauner, Yves Tanguy, Salvador Dalí and René Magritte. The gallery also showcases works from the 1950s and 1960s, including Pierre Soulages, Hans Hartung, Bram van Velde, Nicolas de Staël, Jean Dubuffet, Zoran Mušič and Antoni Tàpies, and organizes two exhibitions per year dedicated to Swiss artists.
