The Swiss Art Archives database

The Swiss Art Archives at SIK-ISEA are specialised holdings accessible to the public, offering insights into a unique collection of letters, photographs, sketch books, diaries, working documents, exhibition records and press clippings associated with Swiss art from the 19th to the 21st century.

The database integrates all the publicly accessible artists’ fonds held by SIK-ISEA. Most inventories are linked to the entry as a PDF file at fonds level and these are also searched in a full-text query. Newer inventories are structured to reflect different description levels.
