Hildy Beyeler, 86, who joined her husband Ernst Beyeler in building one of Switzerland's biggest art collections, died Friday at her home in Riehen, near Basel, Switzerland, after a long illness, according to Catherine Schott, a spokeswoman for the internationally renowned Beyeler Foundation museum. She married Ernst Beyeler in 1948 and became a constant companion in her husband's art business. The Beyelers were art dealers who would decorate their home with paintings that they didn't want to sell.
