The Pietzsch Collection ranks as one of the internationally most significant collections of Surrealist art, with principle works by Andre Breton, Salvador Dali, Paul Delvaux, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, Joan Miro, Andre Masson and Yves Tanguy, as well as numerous works by other artists more broadly connected to the Surrealist movement.

A second important core aspect to the collection lies in works by the Abstract Expressionists in America, whose art movement rose directly from the roots of Surrealism to flourish in the New York of the nineteen-fifties. Works by important figures who have since become legends in their own right, such as Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman are all represented in the collection together with works by the great Mexicans Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.
