Ernst Wilhelm Nay Foundation

In September 2005, the Ernst Wilhelm Nay Foundation was accepted as an independent foundation under the civil law of the district government of Cologne.

The purpose of this Foundation is the continuing promotion of Nay’s art through exhibitions and publications as well as the maintenance of museum standards and support of the scientific editing of the estate.

While these tasks had been solely in the hands of the artist’s widow, now the care of the artistic heritage has been taken over by the Foundation, to be continued after the death of the foundress.
