They span over several decades of the artist's life and show remarkble impressionist and neoimpressionist almost expressionist pieces of art.

Unique chance to see a large part (80 works) of the personal collection of Christoph Blocher, Works of Swiss artists around 1900: Anker, Hodler etc. A MUST, and worth a travel to Winterthur!!! Attention: lasts only until January 2016
