By Emma ZieboldSwiss coffee painting: ‘ I’ll take that Swiss’This was the final picture of a week spent at the Swiss Caffeine Institute, the nation’s oldest art museum.
The exhibit featured the work of renowned Swiss artist Max Weber.
Weber, who died in 2012, had his work displayed in the Swiss National Art Museum for more than a century, but this was the first time he had worked on an exhibit for the museum.
The exhibit opened last year and included over 150 paintings from Weber’s portfolio.
In the photo above, a group of people pose on a balcony.
One person has a small coffee pot on their lap.
The coffee table is filled with a pile of red paper.
It looks like the same coffee table from a previous exhibit.

The painting in the center is a coffee-shaped cup.
It is called ‘The Swiss Cup.’
Weber was born in 1928 in Zurich and moved to Paris to study art at the Sorbonne in the 1950s.
He returned to Switzerland in the 1960s, when he began working on the first coffee pot at the Caffeina Art Institute in Paris.
In 1977, Weber was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his work.
He also received the Medal of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem for the discovery of coffee as a beverage.
The exhibition at the museum featured a number of other Weber paintings, including the one above, which depicts the coffee pot and its owner standing in the same pose as a man in a hooded sweatshirt.
