The Berry Museum, housed in the century-old Villa Arona in the heart of St. Moritz, is dedicated to the doctor and painter Peter Robert Berry (1864–1942). Drawing on a comprehensive family collection, which assembles the majority of the artist’s oil paintings, pastels and drawings created over more than forty years, the Berry Museum for the first time offers deeper insight into the artistic vision of Peter Robert Berry. Inspired and influenced by the internationally celebrated and locally important artists Giovanni Segantini and Giovanni Giacometti, Berry studied art in Paris and Munich. After returning to his birthplace, Berry captured the natural beauty of the mountain surroundings in vibrant colours. St. Moritz and the Upper Engadine are the decisive settings for his work. Life, art and landscape coalesce here to a singular snapshot of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

We visited this museum on a rainy day in St. Moritz. Before our visit, I knew nothing of Dr. Berry. His artwork, which is over 100 years old is absolutely amazing. His use of light and color were brilliant. I highly recommend this museum for any art lover; you will not be disappointed.

We were welcomed by the grandson of the painter who then gave us a brief to tour of the museum. We loved the art and look forward to another.

This is a museum of the art of Peter Berry. It is run by his grandson who has collected his grandfather's part and made this wonderful museum. I really enjoyed the art. There are many fabulous pieces including scenes of the Engadin valley, self-portrait, etc. I also enjoyed very much the audio guide because it provided a lot of insight... More

Very well done small museum. In the center of St Moritz, it is a great way to spend an hour ... seeing some wonderful paintings that fit so well into the Engadine Valley and getting a flavour of how things were back then.
