The Schlösschen im Hofgarten Art Museum

Schlösschen im Hofgarten Museum

The small palace in the court gardens has been an art museum since 2006. It is home to three collections: Works belonging to the Berlin Secession, paintings in the Heidelberg Romance genre and porcelain from Paris.

The Schlösschen im Hofgarten is situated not far from the historical old town in an enchanting English park, built 1777 in Rococo style. The cultural monument, which was once used by the counts of Wertheim as a summer residence, is now home to three outstanding private art collections, as well as temporary special shows.

Paintings and watercolours from the Berlin Secession belonging to the Wolfgang Schuller Foundation are shown at the museum. Thismcollection revolves around Berlin art from around 1900 with its varied styles ranging from art nouveau to impressionism, including works by Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, Max Slevogt, Hans Baluschek, Walter Leistikow and Heinrich Zille.

The “19th century painters from the Rhine-Main-Neckar region” collection shows pieces by painters from Heidelberg and Karlsruhe, some of whom worked in Wertheim or were in contact with artists living here. Among the painters represented in the collection are Carl Rottmann, Bernhard Fries, Daniel Fohr, Georg Wallis, Emil Lugo, Theodor Verhas and Anton von Werner.

The exhibition “Porcelaine de Paris” includes porcelain from the period 1780 to 1830, produced in Parisian porcelain manufactories. Some of this collection is shown alternately.

Besides the permanent exhibitions, there are two special exhibitions each year, as well as guided tours and events.
