SATE went to the museum!

On 18th May 2019, we invited our members to a guided tour in English of the marvellous exhibition “British painting from Turner to Whistler” at the Fondation de l’Hermitage in Lausanne. The guided tour and entry to the museum were free for SATE members

It was great fun and really rewarding! The guide was excellent and very enthusiastic about the exhibition.

Should there be an exhibition in any Swiss museum that we think might be interesting for our members in the future, we may very probably offer something similar again.
