In memoriam: Sonja Dwinger 1925-2012

On 7 may Sonja Dwinger passed away. Mainly known as an artist with a passion for water-colour painting. About her passion Dwinger spoke the following words: ' It is a combination of technique and chance. You can control the process only partly; the water would go his own way and pushes and mingles the dye to the edge. This gives a watercolor-painting such an own character. What happens on the paper is often unpredictable and should be used and exploited the accidental. Whenever I  paint I have the feeling that my circulatory system continues in water. '

Each room in the museum has been carefully documented, photographed from multiple angles. The paintings, sculptures and other pieces that you see during the tour are clickable, allowing you to get more information with a single click of the mouse. Don't forget to take a look at the webshop, either. Ordering posters, cards, books, bookmarks or t-shirts is simple, and your favorite items can be yours quickly and easily. In addition, we've highlighted a few special painters of cats, and the ceiling painting in the Ball Room can be examined up close without having to strain your neck.
