The Museum of Prints and Drawings and the Art Library

The Museum of Prints and Drawings and the Art Library were built between 1987 and 1992 by the architect Rolf Gutbrod. It is the largest collection of graphic art in Germany and one of the four most important in the world. The museum includes over 500 000 prints and 110 000 drawings, watercolours, pastels and oil sketches. This universe of "art on paper" consists of works of masters ranging from Botticelli and Albrecht Dürer to Rembrandt and Adolph von Menzel, from Pablo Picasso to Andy Warhol.

The collection of the Museum of Prints and Drawings is complemented by the works of the neighbouring Art Library. The latter indeed collects and exhibits prints and drawings, primarily European works related to the applied arts.
