700 years of art in one institution
In the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum you can experience how relevant European art from the 13th to the beginning of the 20th century once was - and still is!
The Wallraf-Richartz-Museum is not only the oldest museum in the city of Cologne but also one of the largest classical picture galleries in Germany. It houses one of the most important collections of medieval art in the world, especially that of the "Cologne School of Painting", as well as a selection of works of art ranging from the 16th to the 19th century.
Highlights of the collection are Stefan Lochner's popular "Mother of God in the Rose Arbour", as well as numerous works of baroque art with paintings by Rubens, Rembrandt, Murillo, and others. The museum also has the most extensive collection of Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist art in Germany: represented are Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, Morisot, as well as van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin, Bonnard, and Munch.
The Graphic Arts Collection is also worth a visit: with more than 75,000 sheets from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, it includes drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Rubens, Max Liebermann and Auguste Rodin, among many others.
