Database of the Swiss Art Archives

The Swiss Art Archives at SIK-ISEA are available for public use. This unique specialist collection contains letters, photographs, sketch books, diaries, work papers, exhibition records and press clippings associated with Swiss art from the 19th to the 21st century.

Inventories of all publicly accessible fonds maintained by SIK-ISEA are recorded in the database. Most of these inventories exist as PDF files linked to the entry at fonds level and these files are searched in response to a full-text query. Recent fonds have been catalogued through the Archives database to reflect every level of description.
