Due to its extensive, impressive and well presented collection of modern and contemporary art, the Kunstmuseum Winterthur is a museum of international importance. “The Kunstmuseum Winterthur puts special emphasis on French art from the eve of the 20th century, modern art, art from the post-war period, contemporary American paintings and sculptures, as well as exhibitions from exceptional artists, such as Bonnard or Kelly,” notes museum director Dr. Dieter Schwarz. He adds: “One can hardly ever see these apart from in the major museums.
