Hilti Art Foundation – Die Sammlung. Band 1: Kunst der klassischen Moderne 1880–1950e 1880–1950 - Hilti Art Foundation. Die Sammlung Band 1

The private art collection of the Hilti Art Foundation includes over 200 top-quality paintings, sculptures and photographs from Classical Modernism to the present day. Volume 1 of the two-part catalogue of the collection presents 80 selected works from the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, from Paul Gauguin to Alberto Giacometti.

Ranging from Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Neo-Plasticism and Surrealism to Abstraction, the part of the collection shown in Volume 1 focuses on the following content and artists: the form of man in space in time in the works of Lehmbruck, Boccioni, Picasso and Giacometti; the representational world of things and nature in works by Kirchner, Gris, Feininger and Dubuffet; the imaginary world of symbols and ciphers in the works of Gauguin, Klee, Beckmann and Miró; and the non-representational world of geometric and informel design in the works of Léger, Mondrian, Kandinsky and Wols.
