Established in the 19th century and expanded over generations, the SØR Rusche Collection Oelde/Berlin promotes the dialogue between contemporary artists and the old masters. Today the collection spans over 3500 works with an emphasis on 17th-century Dutch and Flemish painting and 21st-century art. In contrast to the Dutch old masters, the contemporary collection is not restricted to a specific region. Thomas Rusche, the owner of a clothing retail business, started collecting prints and drawings as a boy and later turned his attention to old masters and sculptures, eventually focusing his activities on cabinet painting. In 2004 he started collecting contemporary art in all media.
