The Wallraf invites you to come face to face with great masterpieces of European art. The museum has one of the world’s leading collections of mediaeval painting, with Stefan Lochner’s “Madonna of the Rose Bower” as its greatest attraction. Other highlights include works by the Baroque masters, ranging from Rubens and Rembrandt to Murillo and Boucher, the German Romantics, French Realism, and Impressionism.
Embark on a voyage through 700 years of art history. In combination with the paintings from the Fondation Corboud, the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum has the widest collection of impressionist and neo-impressionist art in Germany. Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, Morisot, Signac and Seurat are all represented by outstanding works, and van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin, Bonnard, Ensor and Munch herald the way to modernism.
The Print Room (2nd floor) presents works from its rich collection of master drawings, by artists ranging from Leonardo da Vinci to Dürer, Rubens, Liebermann, Rodin, and many more.
