Welcome to Count’s Country
|Step back in time with a guided tour through the original working gallery of Count Berthold Von Imhoff, his artistically-treated home, and the surrounding grounds of his Saskatchewan homestead – all of which have been designated a provincial heritage site.One of Saskatchewan’s oldest and most unique tourist attractions, the Imhoff Gallery was built in 1920 and enlarged in 1925. The story of Berthold Von Imhoff, a man whose artistic talent earned acclaim in Europe, prestige in America, and honour by the Vatican, has been described as remarkable, awe-inspiring and, more than 70 years since the artist’s death, a Saskatchewan legacy well worth including in your travel plans.|
Your visit includes:
- • a fully guided tour through the artist’s original gallery where a vast selection of Imhoff’s larger-than-life work is located;
- • a look at the tools used by the artist and methods he employed in the application of gold leaf, leveraging the ‘true’ light from the Saskatchewan sky and examples of perfect perspective;
- • a twenty-minute video of the artist’s life and legacy
- • a guided tour through a portion of the German-born artist’s home, built in 1916.
