Axe Stiftung Kronenburg
The Dr. Ax Foundation promotes art and culture by maintaining its art gallery on the Hasenberghof in Kronenburg (Eifel). The donor himself chose the extraordinary domicile of the pictures. The foundation buys paintings by artists from the Düsseldorf School of Painting and publishes them in scientifically developed exhibition catalogs. The exhibitions are shown in the art cabinet and are temporarily loaned to selected cultural institutions and museums. Because the collection should not only work scientifically, but also convey art enjoyment at a high level to a broad audience.
