“… For some, this House here will open their eyes for a lifetime” wrote Rainer Maria Rilke about the Kunsthalle Bremen in 1902.

Pieces range from Masolina da Panciale and Albrecht Dürer up to Nam June Paik and James Turrell. In addition to superb works of European painting and sculpture from the 16th to the 21st century, it comprises photographs and media art as well as one of the most important prints collections in Germany. The book tells the vibrant story of the Museum, presenting over 150 collection masterpieces in color reproductions and with commentaries to accompany the works.
