Museum Rietberg


The simple elegance of the relatively new glass building of the Rietberg Museum in Zürich. Reflecting the Villa Wesendonck. The original owner of the estate, Otto Wesendonck was a fan and supporter of Richard Wagner and the latter spent a portion of this time in exile at a cottage here. He wrote the music to the Wesendonck Lieder during that time, as he had a special place in his heart for Mrs. Wesendonck.
