Summary: You do not have to travel far to have the pleasure of dining beneath a Chagall: it is enough to enjoy an evening on the town in Zurich. The walls of the Kronenhalle Restaurant at Bellevue Square in Zurich display showpieces from the Hulda and Gustav Zumsteg Foundation. Gustav Zumsteg (1915–2005), son of the legendary owner of the Kronenhalle, Hulda Zumsteg, and a passionate art collector, concentrated on works by classic modern artists who, along with literary figures, couturiers, and actors, frequented the brasserie and bar. At the forefront of this publication are the works of art at the Kronenhalle. It contains an essay by the editor of this impressive compilation as well as a written portrait of the collector himself. It also includes contributions by guest authors who have very personal tales to tell about their favorite pictures at the Kronenhalle.
