Le Musée d'Art et d'Histoire de Genève
Pas de stylo dans la cache / No pen in the box
Erected between 1903 and 1910 and designed as an encyclopedic museum, it covers the whole of western culture, from its origins to the present days.
Its three sectors comprise Archaeology (prehistoric, Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan, Roman); Fine Arts (some 400 paintings from the Renaissance to modern times, and sculptures by artists such as Houdon, Pradier, Rodin, Arp, Giacometti, Tinguely, etc.); Applied Arts (objects from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, such as furniture, textiles, pewterware, arms and armor).
Don’t fail to see the celebrated 15th century altarpiece by Konrad Witz, "The Miraculous Draught of Fish" and original stained glass windows, all formerly installed in Saint Peter’s Cathedral..
