Berlin has been drawn by its history, by triumphs and fiascos, by feudalism, pragmatism, liberalism, democracies and dictatorships. It has also been drawn and painted by many artists. The Berlinische Galerie holds one of the biggest and most significant collections of art about the city of Berlin.

A special selection will go on display from 7 August, in many cases for the first time. More than 175 works by 22 women and 47 men will be on show: mostly drawings in all formats from big to small, much in colour, much in black-and-white, in very different techniques and in a variegated bouquet of representational art, photorealism, surrealism, late Expressionism, abstract styles, illustrations and comics.
