The purpose of the Foundation

The purpose of the Foundation is to make available the house and studio of its founder at Ronco sopra Ascona to painters, sculptors, writers and musicians, regardless of their nationality or religion, for stays of limited duration, where they can benefit from a peaceful atmosphere favourable to creative work and relaxation. Artists who have already been recognised for the quality of their work are particularly welcome to apply. The Foundation is also responsible for the administration and upkeep of the Foundation’s moral and material heritage, especially the artworks of the painter and writer Richard Seewald.
