Von der Heydt-Museum Wuppertal
Impressionism and more in the former Elberfeld Town Hall
The internationally renowned museum attracts art lovers with its large collection that is presented in different sections. The collection includes art from the 1st millennium up to the present age. It focuses on impressionism, expressionism and the twenties.
Lovers of Impressionism have come to the right place in visiting the Wuppertal Von der Heydt Museum: the museum's collection dates back to donations from the Von der Heydt banking family, whose interest primarily lay in the paintings of the 19th century, and Impressionism in particular.
The museum, which is now housed in the former Elberfeld Town Hall, shows selections of its important collection in ever changing contexts, with the museum focusing on different topics to allow for new perspectives on works by Cézanne, Gauguin, Monet, Munch, Picasso, Rousseau and other famous artists.
Further highlights of the collection are paintings by the 16th and 17th century Dutch masters, 19th century painting and drawing and primarily 20th century Expressionist painting, making this Wuppertal museum one of the most important and internationally-famed art locations in Germany.
