Masterpieces move into the Kunstmuseum Basel
The Im Obersteg Collection has been an ongoing one since the year 1916. It has never been shown in Basel, although it was possible to admire single works in the Kunstmuseum from the end of the 1960s on. With the arrival of the foundation, the museum’s own existing first-rate collection of masterpieces and important work groups will be restocked in a way that has not happened for many years.
