The Julius Baer Art Collection specialises in works by contemporary artists of Swiss nationality, or artists who live in Switzerland. The Art Committee, responsible for the acquisitions, thereby pursues the concept of promoting young talents. At the time of the first acquisition the artists are often at the beginning of their career. This collection strategy has resulted in an extremely interesting and representative body of work, covering all areas of the Swiss artistic endeavour spanning more than thirty years.
We have an eye for art
Julius Baer's approach to art acquisition promotes the preservation of visual art in Switzerland. Today, the collection encompasses over 5,000 works and contains pieces by many leading Swiss artists such as John Armleder, Silvia Bächli, Lutz & Guggisberg, Markus Raetz, Pipilotti Rist, Ugo Rondinone, Roman Signer, to name but a few.
