Segantini Museum

Art in St. Moritz

from Giovanni Segantini to Andy Warhol
St. Moritz’s Segantini Museum is home to the famous triptych and other key works by the master painter. While the museum may be the jewel in St. Moritz’s cultural crown, works by great artists can also be found in its numerous other art galleries, such as the Vito Schnabel Gallery, Hauser & Wirth and Karsten Greve – to name just a few.

This exclusive Alpine destination has always been popular among artists and thinkers, a haven for renowned authors and a source of inspiration for great painters. The creative legacy of countless artists is evident all around, in the form of the many exhibitions, galleries and museums in and around St. Moritz.

Many famous artists have visited this cultural hub seeking fresh ideas, and some have even made it their second home. The extraordinary painter Giovanni Segantini lived in the Engadin for several years, and the world’s most comprehensive collection of his work can be found here in the Segantini Museum.

Galleries and museums in and around St. Moritz.

Galerie Karsten Greve

St. Moritz and the surrounding Engadin region has the highest density of galleries in the world. As a result, St. Moritz has long been considered a major player in the world of contemporary art.

Renowned galleries such as Karsten Greve, Hauser & Wirth, Andrea Caratsch and the Vito Schnabel Gallery have all set up shop in the sophisticated Alpine resort. This creative impulse extends beyond the borders of St. Moritz, too. A noteworthy example is Grazyna Kulczyk’s Muzeum Susch, located in an old brewery at the foot of the Flüela Pass. Then there are the celebrated sculptures by Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti, which are deemed as valuable and significant as the works of Picasso.
