Located at the Musée Jenisch Vevey since 1989, the mission of the Cabinet cantonal des estampes is to preserve, study, defend and exhibit the medium of the print in all its forms. With more than 35,000 works from the Renaissance to the present day, it brings together three public collections and three collections deposited by two foundations and an association which, through their generosity and trust, contribute to the promotion of printed art in the Canton of Vaud:


Collection des estampes de l’État de Vaud

Collection des estampes de la Ville de Vevey

Collection du Musée Alexis Forel

Fondation Pierre Aubert

Fondation William Cuendet & Atelier de Saint-Prex

Fonds des estampes du Professeur Decker

Pavillon de l’estampe

In December 2016, a partnership agreement was established by the Canton de Vaud and the city of Vevey, in association with the partner institutions of the Cabinet cantonal des estampes. The inauguration of the specific space that is the Pavillon de l’estampe, on 16 November 2017, marks a concrete step in this partnership.

A new exhibition space located in the heart of the museum and entirely dedicated to the art of printmaking, the Pavillon de l’estampe presents three exhibitions each year exploring the richness of the printmaking world.
