From Rousseau to Richter, from Brancusi to Bourgeois, from Monet to Miró-this volume presents twenty-five inspiring highlights that have transformed art in innovative ways. These works were selected from the more than 400 works held in the collection of the Fondation Beyeler. Whether it is found in the radical light reflected in Monet's water lily pond or in Warhol's Flowers, whether it is found in Mondrian's abstract grids or Rothko's expressively luminous color fields, these twenty-five works attest to a visionary power reaching far beyond their present times. Such works are emblematic of the collection of modern art that has been carefully assembled by gallery owners Ernst and Hildy Beyeler and of the museum, which has become one of the most popular and successful venues in Europe since it was founded in 1997.
