Franz Gertsch Museum in Burgdorf

The museum in the heart of the city

On display at the museum are works by the internationally renowned Swiss artist Franz Gertsch, as well as temporary exhibitions featuring the works of artists from Switzerland and abroad.

The museum’s collection focuses on Franz Gertsch’s large-format woodcuts on Japan paper and his monumental paintings (from 1986 onwards). “The Four Seasons” cycle is unique here. It consists of a section of forest photographed in spring, summer, autumn and winter and displayed on 3x5-metre canvases, whereby the photos can easily be mistaken for paintings.
