Musée Jenisch Vevey


The second-largest art museum in the canton of Vaud, the Musée Jenisch Vevey has over the years acquired major collections of works on paper – prints and drawings from every period – which today account for more than 95% of its holdings. Specifically, there are 9'500 drawings, 35,000 prints and 1,300 paintings.

The temporary and semi-permanent exhibitions are thus devoted primarily to prints and drawings.

Since its foundation the Swiss RISM branch has recorded systematically prints before 1800, collective prints of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries and other works about music, manuscripts after 1600 as well as prints of the 19th and 20th centuries.

RISM operates as a service. Projects are developed and implemented in collaboration with the institutions (libraries, archives, monasteries) that own the sources.
