Housed in an elegant, late 19th-century townhouse in Geneva, the collections of the Baur Foundation – Museum of Far Eastern Art contain more than 9,000 Chinese and Japanese works amassed by Swiss collector Alfred Baur (1865-1951). These treasures, acquired over a period of some 45 years, include Chinese imperial ceramics, jades and snuff bottles from the 10th to the 19th centuries, as well as Japanese prints, lacquer, netsuke and sword fittings. For lovers of Asian art, few collections compare to this one. (Exterior photo courtesy of Marian Gérard)
