The Oskar Reinhart Collection “Am Römerholz” contains European masterpieces from the Classical Antiquity to the early 20th century. The focus is on French paintings from the 19th century; it is complimented by important examples of older art. The Collection is housed in Oskar Reinhart's private residence and is a typical example of private collections from the first half of the 20th century that were compiled with a similar focus in Germany and the USA. In 1958, Oskar Reinhart bequeathed the mansion and his collection to the Swiss Confederation. After his death in 1965, the house was slightly remodelled to serve as a museum and was opened to the public in 1970.
