The Collection of Hermann and Margrit Rupf

The Collection of Hermann and Margrit Rupf brought together 70 works by notable artists that hail from the first half of the twentieth century.



The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presented The Collection of Hermann and Margrit Rupf. This exhibition brought together 70 works by key artists in the history of art during the first half of the 20th century.

These included Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, Paul Klee, and Vasily Kandinsky, in dialogue with works by contemporary artists dating from the second half of the 20th century until today. In 1963, one year after the death of Hermann Rupf, the Foundation managed to purchase Henri Laurens’s 1918 work Fruit Bowl and Pipe (Compotier et pipe) to complete its already extensive group of sculptures and works on paper by this artist. In 1964, a relief by Hans Arp was purchased (Gallery 307).
