The Graphische Sammlung ETH Zürich is one of the most important and extensive collections of art on paper in Switzerland and internationally, with currently around 160,000 works. From Albrecht Dürer to Louise Bourgeois, from Rembrandt to Silvia Bächli and from Francisco de Goya to Andy Warhol - important national and international names as well as young artists are represented. The collection of prints and drawings represents art history from the 15th century to the present in a unique way.

In 3-4 exhibitions per year, the Graphische Sammlung ETH Zürich presents a selection of its high-quality works on paper and offers a variety of events. Besides, interested people may visit the study room in order to examine and study works (by appointment only).

The art collection offers a wide range of points of contact for artlovers and scientists alike and makes an exchange between ETH Zürich and the wider public possible – on site as well as through the collection catalogue online.
