Alice Boner in India at Rietberg Museum

In the heart of Zurich, the Villa Wesendonck was turned in 1949 into an exhibition space destined to highlight the art collections offered by Baron Eduard von der Heydt.

Ever since its opening in 1952, the Rietberg Museum has exhibited great African, Islamic and Asian works of art, as well as upcoming and little known talents. Such is the case from September 23rd 2017 to January 14th 2018 with the Alice Boner in India exhibition, initiated in 2010 at the museum. Consisting in the art historian's sketches, drawings, paintings, sculptures, notes, manuscripts and diaries, the exhibition aims to describe the generous life she lead between two cultures, especially her forty years spent in the city of Varanasi, India. Through curious and eclectic works of art, Alice Boner always championed Indian art in Switzerland and throughout the world.
