Sammlung Oskar Reinhart "Am Römerholz" (Oskar Reinhart Collection)
Sammlung Oskar Reinhart "Am Römerholz" (Oskar Reinhart Collection) Review
Lucas Cranach's Portrait of Johannes Cuspinian, Pieter Breughel the Elder's Adoration of the Magi in the Snow, Peter Paul Rubens's Decius Mus, Edouard Manet's Au Café, Toulouse-Lautrec's Clownesse Cha-U-Kao—you get the picture. This is one of the greatest private art collections in Switzerland, perhaps only rivaled by the Sammlung E.G. Bührle in Zürich. The jewel in the crown of Winterthur's art museums, Am Römerholz is virtually wallpapered with legendary paintings. Private collector Oskar Reinhart's most magnificent treasures are housed in his former villa "Am Römerholz," built in 1915 on the hill overlooking town. The collection ranges across five centuries, with pride of place going to 16th-century German and Early Dutch paintings, 17th-century French and Flemish paintings, and Impressionist masterworks. Works by Gerard David, Poussin, Daumier, Van Gogh, and nearly 200 other artists stagger the eye.
