From 24 February to 21 May 2023, the Kunsthaus Zürich presents the drawings of the Swiss artist Henry Fuseli (1741–1825). Fuseli (Johann Heinrich Füssli) was one of the most idiosyncratic, original and controversial artists in 18th-century Europe. His art’s emphatically individualistic and sensationalist character divided public opinion throughout his career.

The Kunsthaus Zürich has gathered together some 60 works offering a unique opportunity to experience this draughtsman at his most innovative and exciting, as the creator of a fascinating pictorial universe as provocative as it is challenging.

The exhibition (Fuseli. Fashion – Fetishism – Fantasy) is the outcome of a close collaboration with The Courtauld, London.
