The Austrian artist Ida Maly (1894–1941) lived and worked in Vienna, Munich, Berlin and Paris. Committed to a psychiatriac institution as a schizophrenic in the 1920s, the works she created there read like prophecies of the atrocities of euthanasia the National Socialists had in store for inmates of such institutions. In 1941 Ida Maly was murdered in the Hartheim Euthanasia Centre. Her work documents the life of a highly talented artist in the reputedly “golden 1920s”, who found her own artistic language “between the established styles”.

The collection is the heart and the soul of our museum. The basic idea underpinning this presentation of the museum’s collection is restoring the chronological sequence of works, which will allow visitors to get to know the most important movements and styles of art history from the 19th century to the present in the original. In addition to this, we are putting the focus on artists who have a special relationship with Linz and the Lentos, such as VALIE EXPORT and Herbert Bayer.
