A doctor and collector, Pierre Decker (1892–1967) dedicates his life to the practice of medicine and to his passion for two of the greatest printmakers in Western art: Albrecht Dürer (1472-1553) and Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (1606-1669).

To mark the publication of a major work devoted to collector of art, the cantonal prints collection (Cabinet cantonal des estampes) is offering an opportunity to rediscover this prestigious ensemble in the Jenisch museum.

The exhibition shows around seventy works, including a work by Lucas Cranach the Older (1472-1553).
