The Forberg Collection

Until 22 January 2012

The Forberg Collection was presented to the ALBERTINA Museum in 2007 by Mathias and Eva Forberg on a permanent loan basis. Comprising 38 outstanding artworks, it complements the ALBERTINA Museum‘s own collection especially in the area of Classical Modernism. The collection features works on paper, prints, sculptures, and paintings of exceptional quality by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Lyonel Feininger, and Fernand Léger, and by representatives of the „Blue Rider“ (“Der Blaue Reiter”) movement, such as Alexeij Jawlensky and Wassily Kandinsky, as well as August Macke, who was associated with the group. In addition, it includes works by the „Bridge“ (“Brücke”) painters Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Otto Mueller, and Max Pechstein as well as by the „Bauhaus“ artists Lazlo Moholy-Nagy and Oskar Schlemmer. At the core of the Forberg Collection, however, is an exquisite selection of works by Paul Klee.

The ALBERTINA Museum presents the original Forberg Collection for the first time, along with the works that were acquired later by Mathias and Eva Forberg.
