The E. G. Bührle Collection is an art museum located in Zürich, Switzerland. It is named after the family that owned the collection and founded it. Bührle's father established the museum and gave it its name. It is housed in the former home of Emil Georg Bührle and is housed in a historic villa adjacent to it. There are more than 2,000 works of art in the Buehrle Collection, ranging from early Renaissance to modernist works of art.
