Permanent Collection

The collector and its collection

Professor Dr. h.c. Ignaz Walter began collecting modern, contemporary art at the beginning of the 70's.
• Painting and sculptures have been and still are its main objects.
• Its motto: never copy the art conception of others. Be always faithful to your own sentiment. Never quarrel about art, because art is relative.
• Its goal: A high-quality collection of modern, contemporary art.
• Its concept: the collection should be systematically developed and mediate a comprehensive overview of the artistic work in the post-war period.
• Its request: To share with other art-lovers the joy of beautiful art.
• The collection of Ignaz Walter covers today the strange-fantastic, the informal-abstract up to the figurative art.
• Numerous sculptures supplement the collection.
