The starting point for the exhibition operations has been the top-quality West Coast Art Collection which, currently comprising more than 720 works, was made accessible to the public. The collection focuses on painting from four littoral countries of the North Sea ‒ Norway, Denmark, North Germany and the Netherlands – in the period from 1830 to 1930. The collecting concept encompasses the great landscapes as well as the living and working environment along the west coast.


As a result of private donations and permanent loans from private collections, the first-rate collection continuously grows, expanding year after year. Please contact us for more information regarding you support!
