The Museum Langmatt in Baden is a gem in every respect. The house and garden take visitors back to the turn of the previous century, when Jenny and Sidney W. Brown set up house here. As collectors, the couple was well-informed and well-connected, and they assembled noteworthy, mainly Impressionist works of art, mainly on their trips to Paris. The Browns acquired paintings by Renoir, Monet, Gauguin, Cézanne, and Degas—numerous small works that were displayed in the rooms. The Museum Langmatt, which opened in 1990, is founded upon this unique core collection. The Browns living area became an influential exhibition space for contemporary art. This carefully designed, illustrated volume has been compiled to celebrate the museum’s thirtieth anniversary. It provides a look at the magical art collection, its special history, and a glimpse behind the scenes, as well. Accompanied by essays by the museum’s director, Markus Stegmann, as well as by eye witnesses, experts, and artists, the publication affords an atmospheric view of this unusual institution.

The MUSEUM LANGMATT collection was significantly founded by Sidney and Jenny Brown between 1900 and 1933. The heart of the collection consists of around 50 outstanding French impressionist. This unique ensemble also includes valuable French furniture from the 18th and 19th century, sculptures, drawings, textiles, silver, and porcelain, and also Chinese ceramics.
