This register is primarily intended to help the cantonal authorities to maintain their works of art and to make it possible to search for specific objects and artists. The inventory will comprise some 250 works from all over the canton, from the Bernese Oberland to the Lake District, in hospitals, schoolhouses, office buildings and public spaces.
