Fondazione Lindenberg - Villa Pia

The Art Foundation Erich Lindenberg has been constituded two years after the death of Erich Lindenberg in 2006, who left a very extensive heritage of oil on canvas, pastels, drawings, watercolours and photographs.

An old friend of school of Erich Lindenberg, Mareen Koch, founded in 2008 the Art Foundation with the main goal of preserving and presenting the whole work of this great artist, who lived in between Munich and Berlin, to a public.

Cooperation with the artist’s erstwhile companions, such as curators, art critics, and gallery owners, is being intensified. This also includes the museums in which his works were exhibited, with the aim of bringing about subsequent loans, sales, and exhibitions. The museum project “Villa Pia” in Porza near Lugano, the new location of the collection, affords the opportunity of presenting a first posthumous retrospective. Several of his paintings were exhibited here and concerts held even before the building was renovated in order to raise awareness of the museum in Italo-Switzerland and beyond.

A permanent but alternating part of the collection will be presented there after the retrospective. Regional artists as well as international painters and photographers will similarly also have occasion to enrich art life in Ticino and Lombardy.
