Alfred Baur descobriu seu amor pela arte durante suas viagens ao Extremo Oriente. Durante um período de quatro décadas, ele adquiriu objetos da arte e artefatos rituais de alta qualidade feitos na China e no Japão. Hoje, a coleção de Baur é uma das mais valiosas da Suíça.

Alfred Baur, who resided in Geneva from the year 1900 onwards, collected over a period of 45 years, during his business trips, art objects from the Far East. The items span a thousand years as far as their date of manufacture is concerned. The collection includes objects made of ceramics or jade, snuff boxes, Japanese prints, netsuke (small carved figurines), furniture and swords.

Shortly before his death Baur acquired an elegant house near the Art and History Museum and the Russian Church. He established a foundation to house his collection and make it accessible to the public. In 1964 the "Fondation Alfred et Eugénie Baur-Duret" made the Baur collection accessible for public viewing. Since that time the collection has grown to over 9,000 works of art, thanks to several donations.
