The Bromer Art Collection is René Brogli’s private collection, which is incorporated to bromer kunst. René Brogli is initiator and manager of bromer kunst. 
As a carpenter René Brogli started to build frameworks for local artists, in this ambit at the age of 23 he got in contact with art for the first time. Particularly encountering the landscape painter Arnold Ammann (Seon, 1920-1991) was leading and enriching for René Brogli. In that period he started to buy the first artworks for his private collection.
Gradually he gathered a collection of Swiss landscape and mountain paintings focusing on the 19th and 20th century. Amongst others he acquired major artworks by Cuno Amiet, Ernest Bièler and Charles L’Eplattenier. 
In the past 10 years Brogli’s area of interest broadened and the collection experienced a Renaissance. Increasingly contemporary artistic positions are added to the collection, for instance artworks by the German enfant terrible Jonathan Meese and by Land Art artist Richard Long. Today, René Brogli is also a passionate collector of the Swiss artist Sabine Hertig, who upgraded the notion of collage in her own manner.
René Brogli is particularly committed to pursuing long-term projects, for instance, the elaboration of an extensive monograph about the first abstract Swiss painter, Rudolf Urech-Seon. Brogli: «Urech went his own path; he found an abstract mode of expression, even though he never quit his environment of stylistic conservative-minded people. Therefore he merits my highest esteem.»
To René Brogli it is essential to combine the activity of collecting with constant investigations. He is always looking for new discoveries and is eager to realize creative projects. Based on the researches about the Swiss artist Rudolf Häsler, Brogli gained increased interest in Cuban art. On a journey to Cuba, his new passion led him to the pre-revolutionary painter Antonio Argudín, whose still broadly unknown art represent an important testimony of Cuban history.
bromer kunst keeps displaying artworks of René Brogli’s private collection in various exhibitions.

Facility

Until July 2018, the spacious facility of the 1600m² gallery complex presented Swiss and international art. Thematic and artist-specific shows were presented regularly.
The gallery building, which is located at the fringe of a natural preserve area, was designed by the architect Dr. Marie Aigner from Munich in collaboration with Bromer Architects. The facilities also include a depot and a multifunctional media room. The climatic and light conditions within the facility are controlled frequently and correspond to the standard requirements for the optimal conservation of artworks with different properties. Adequate storage and showroom areas are of great importance to bromer kunst.

At the moment, a business-Center is located within the building.
Subsequently, you can look at the previously used facilities. Our art depot, showroom and offices are still located in the same facility. An appointment or visit is possible by prior arrangement.
