All these invaluable treasures of world culture were collected by industrialist Emil Burle during World War II. Preferably, they were in possession of individuals of Jewish origin and, given the political situation in Europe at that time and close cooperation of the BURIL with the Nazi regime, got a new owner easily. After the end of the war, the eligibility of finding a masterpiece in the Burel meeting was repeatedly challenged, however, almost all of them remained in their place in the collection.
In 1960, after the death of the collector, his widow and children founded the Burle Foundation and transferred most of the exhibits for the museum’s collection, which was opened to the public in the same year. Now the museum occupies a small building of 1886 buildings near the former collector residence.
The collection is stored on a picturesque villa
