Intro

Since 1951, this former grammar school located next to the city park has housed some 600 paintings and drawings by Swiss, German and Austrian artists. This varied collection of works was brought together by Winterthur art lover Oskar Reinhart.

The Kunst Museum Winterthur / Reinhart am Stadtgarten,formerly the Museum Oskar Reinhart, was previously home to the Oskar Reinhart Foundation. When it opened in 1951, it was the first private museum in Switzerland. The collector and patron Oskar Reinhart (1885–1965), son of Theodor Reinhart and co-founder of the Kunstverein art association, spent his whole life building an extensive art collection. Following the re-emergence of German art in the early 1900s, Reinhart began to acquire German and Austrian works of art as well as those from Switzerland.

These unique works belonging to the artistic currents of early Romanticism and Realism are permanently on display. Further masterpieces from the Dutch Golden Age bequeathed by the Jakob Briner Foundation and a selection of portrait miniatures from the Briner and Kern collections are presented in temporary exhibitions. Now owned by the Swiss Confederation, Reinhart’s villa “Am Römerholz” houses and displays his collection of Old Masters and French Impressionists.
