Kunsthaus Zürich

Nordic Expressionism

Wilhelm Wartmann, director of the Kunsthaus from 1908 to 1950, placed the main emphasis of his collecting activities on the expressive depiction of the human face and form found in Hodler and Fuseli, late gothic painting and contemporary Nordic expressionism. Edvard Munch took pride of place in this latter category, while amongst the younger representatives it was above all Oskar Kokoschka that he supported: a large representative selection of works from both artists can be seen at the Kunsthaus. Alongside these are several works by Max Beckmann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and the Basel group Rot-Blau.
