K 20 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen

The history of the Kunstsammlung NRW began in 1960, when the state government bought a collection of 88 works by the painter Paul Klee. The Klee collection is the basis of the foundation "Stiftung Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen", established in 1961 by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Focal point of this collection are works of art from before 1945, beginning with: Fauvism, Expressionism and the 'Blue Rider', Cubism and the "pittura metafisca".

The prevailing schools of the Twenties and Thirties are Dadaism and Surrealism with their counterpoles, Constructivism, Bauhaus and "De Stijl".

The second department of the collection is dedicated to works of art from after 1945, ranging from Abstract Expressionism in the USA and in Europe to Joseph Beuys.

In addition to this collection, there are frequent changing exhibitions.
