Villa Langmatt at Baden may well be considered one of the gems among the Swiss private collections that are open to the public. In 1908, the entrepreneurs and married couple Sidney and Jenny Brown started to assemble the first Impressionist collection in Switzerland, which is still being presented in its original living-space setting today. Starting with Camille Corot and Eugène Boudin, it includes works by Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro and Alfred Sisley as well as Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin. There are also some works by Gustave Courbet, Henri Fantin-Latour, Odilon Redon and the France- based American artist Mary Cassatt. The collection is rounded off by a few 18th century canvasses. The catalog presents the complete collection of paintings, a selection of applied-art objects such as furniture, silver, 18th and 19th-century porcelain and Asiatica, all reviewed and commented on by a team of renowned art historians. Essays about the history of the collection, the architecture of the villa, which was designed by the leading architect Karl Moser, and the gardens, laid out by Otto Froebel, complement the presentation of this culturally and art historically fascinating ensemble.
