The Photoarchive of Kunsthalle Basel documents our more than 100 years of exhibition history by way of roughly 25,000 photographs. The analogue contents of the archive are freely accessible, allowing the study of hundreds of past exhibitions as well as the works they contained and the audiences who visited. The digital archive of Kunsthalle Basel is part of the research database SALSAH of the Digital Humanities Lab of University of Basel.

To celebrate the exhibition devoted to Claude Monet at the Fondation Beyeler, we dug into our photoarchive and found this previously unpublished image, showing the water lilies radiant in the skylight galleries of Kunsthalle Basel in 1949.
