bromer kunst

bromer kunst is a Swiss art gallery founded by René Brogli in November 2011 and headquartered in the central Roggwil, in the canton of Bern. The Bromer Art Collection is René Brogli’s private collection, which is part of the gallery. 

The focus of their program is on one side classical modernism, with names such as Cuno Amiet, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner or Ferdinand Hodler, and on the other side contemporary art, with works by artists such as Thomas Röthel, Dirk Salz or Rudolf Häsler.

bromer kunst has established itself in the international art market as a strong position, able to research, advise and mediate in the purchase and selling of masterworks from the secondary market. The gallery maintains a close relationship with collectors and institutions and thus has access to important works of art, collections and estates. In this context, bromer kunst offers the art-historical reappraisal and management of whole artist estates. In addition, bromer kunst also provides support in the development, preservation and dissolution of art collections.

Furthermore, bromer kunst is actively committed to art education and raising the awareness and support of visual arts through its active website and its publishing branch Edition Bromer, dedicated to artist monographs and exhibition catalogues.

bromer art collection

The bromer art collection is the private art collection of René Brogli, initiator of bromer kunst and chairman of the board of Bromer Holding AG. The encounter with the landscape painter Arnold Ammann was his first contact with the art world, upon which he began to collect art passionately. The focus of his collection grew into the field of classical modernism and Swiss landscape and mountain painting from the 19th and 20th centuries, including important works by Cuno Amiet, Ferdinand Hodler, Ernest Bièler or Charles L’Eplattenier among others.
In the past ten years, the collection has expanded thematically through the increasing addition of contemporary positions, including works by the German enfant terrible Jonathan Meese, the Land Art artist Richard Long or the Swiss artist Sabine Hertig.
René Brogli's enthusiasm for the Swiss artist Rudolf Häsler, who lived in Cuba for twelve years during the revolution, also brought the collection to a new focus point and a new geographical expansion: Cuban art. On a journey through the Caribbean country, Brogli became aware of the painter Antonio Argudín, whose still unrecognized art is an important testimony to Cuban history.
