They called themselves the "Zinkenbacher Colony of Painters" and numbered up to 27 artists.

Inspired by the beautiful scenery they were predominantily landscape artists, however they remained faithful to their individual styles. They represented the important artists of the Austrian art scene between the two World Wars, who originated from the famous Viennese associations of artists, such as "Sezessoir" or "Hagenbund". Some of them also taught at the Viennese Academy.

This multidimensional artistic aspect is of interest- representing all trends of painting at the time- as much as their heterogeneous composition in a politically critcal time. Politically tolerated and prosecuted, nationalistic, communist and Nazi-orientated artists spent their time together as friends. the caricature "The Paint-ship" demonstrates this clearly.

The group dissolved in 1938 due the escape of most of its members.

The changing exhibitions in this museum are dedicated to the memory of this "lost generation".
