Museum Collection

Holstebro Kunstmuseum collects Danish and international art from the 1930s until today and traditional art from several continents. In that way, the collection of Holstebro Kunstmuseum presents art as a universal phenomenon.


The museum collects relatively few artists who, on the other hand, are usually represented by a large number of works.

Not all the artists in the museum collection are exhibited. See the present display.

Complete list of the artists and works of art in the museum collection can be found in Kunstindeks Danmark (KID) & Weilbachs Kunstnerleksikon.
