Their lucent colors can even compete with works of Modernism, and they are definitely not outshone by French Impressionism, either. In their medi-tative character they let the observer forget immediately about 21st century’s hectic. Whether it’s the clear blue sky, the warm winter light or spectacular displays of light and shade – the naturalistic, almost photorealistic style in combination with a remarkable brush handling and color concept brings to live the magic and lust for life of these bygone times.

With a sure eye for quality the collection was compiled over years. Those who will fall for its charm will benefit from a booming art market and have an excellent opportunity to buy moderately estimated world class works that one would elsewise find only with higher quotations in London or New York.
