The Museum Franz Gertsch opened its doors in 2002 and ever since a long string of international masterpieces has graced the Swiss museum with their presence. Gertsch himself made his international breakthrough in 1972 at the documenta 5 in Kassel followed by a production of outstanding pictorial and graphical works. The symbiosis of precision, talent and creativity – this perfectly describes the art of Franz Gertsch. His most famous paintings and woodcuts are naturally showcased in the museum bearing his name, the unique design of the building mirroring his own work.
