The Jean-Pierre Müller Donation

The collection of Russian icons of Mr Jean-Pierre Müller (1922-2006), child of Morges, was presented to the Museum Alexis Forel in 2009. With more than 120 icons, this donation forms a whole, the immense quality of which is to be found in its artistic value, the period it embraces – from the 16th to the 19th century – as well as in the richness of its iconographic subjects. On permanent display in the “Renaissance” room, a selection of around twenty icons is representative of the most important collection to date of its type in Switzerland.
