Wallraf-Richartz-Museum & Fondation Corboud

The Wallraf shows how modern and relevant European art from the 13th to the beginning of the 20th century still is today. The Wallraf invites you to come face to face with great masterpieces of European art. The museum has one of the most important collections of medieval art worldwide. Stefan Lochner's "Madonna in the Rose Bower" is the absolute highlight. Other highlights are Baroque painting with works by Rubens, Rembrandt, Tiepolo and Boucher, German Romanticism and French painting of the 19th century.

In the paintings of the Fondation Corboud the museum has the most extensive collection of Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist art in Germany. Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, Morisot, Signac and Seurat are all represented with outstanding works. Van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin, Bonnard, Ensor and Munch herald in modernism. Experience the modern design of this important gallery.

The impressively clear lines of the building by the Cologne star architect Oswald Mathias Ungers (1926-2007) was opened in 2001. The presentation of the collection on display is being constantly optimised, the Graphisches Kabinett shows a changing selection of master drawings from its rich collections with works by Leonardo, Dürer, Rubens, Liebermann, Rodin and many others.

current Exhibition

Sonntag des Lebens

July 13, 2018 to June 30, 2019

DE Rauschende Roben, vornehme Kulissen, exotische Früchte und edle Accessoires - Porträts und Stillleben der Barockzeit spielen meist auf der Sonnenseite des Lebens. Doch verbergen sich hinter den prachtvoll inszenierten Personen und dekorativen Arrangements auch abenteuerliche Schicksale und doppelbödige Geschichten. Mit seiner neuen Sammlungspräsentation "Sonntag des Lebens" lädt das Wallraf seine Besucher in die schillernde Welt des Barocks ein.

Rubens, Jordaens & Co. Drawings oft the masters from flanders

June 15, 2018 to September 9, 2018

The Wallraf-Richartz-Museum not only has a wonderful collection of paintings by a large number of Flemish artists, but also magnificent drawings – and often the two are closely linked. Anyone who wishes to know how, for instance, the glorious Rubens canvas Juno and Argus came about should examine the drawings by the master, for they reveal a great deal about the creative process.

Vorschau

Schatten im Blick?

28. September 2018 bis 13. Januar 2019

Das Wallraf begibt sich auf Spurensuche nach einem besonders flüchtigen und schwierig darzustellenden Phänomen: dem Schatten. Die Besucher werden auf eine (kunst-)historische Entdeckungsreise eingeladen, die in der frühen Neuzeit startet. Künstler wie Leonardo da Vinci und Albrecht Dürer widmen sich als Erste der geometrischen Konstruktion von Schatten.

Es war einmal in Amerika. 300 Jahre US-amerikanische Kunst

23. November 2018 bis 24. März 2019

Das Wallraf-Richartz-Museum widmet sich mit einer großen Überblicksausstellung US-amerikanischer Kunst aus drei Jahrhunderten. Die Schau beginnt mit Werken aus der Kolonialzeit bis hin zu den Meistern des amerikanischen Realismus und endet mit Beispielen des Abstrakten Expressionismus. Mehr als 120 Leihgaben aus den renommiertesten Sammlungen und Museen der Vereinigten Staaten holt das Wallraf nach Köln.
