The UBS Art Collection focuses on works of museum quality that represent the defining trends in European and American contemporary art from the second half of the twentieth century. With over 900 paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures by major artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Andreas Gursky, Edward Ruscha, Lucian Freud and Candida Höfer, The UBS Art Collection is recognised as one of the world’s most important corporate collections of contemporary art.

As an integral part of UBS’s commitment to the arts, the firm has developed long-term partnerships with leading organisations worldwide. Such relationships have enabled us to realise our vision of sharing works from The UBS Art Collection. The Collection is already available to the public through exhibitions in museums such as MoMA, New York, the Fondation Beyeler, Basel and now Tate Modern.
