In 1960 founding member Karl Schmidt-Rottluf donated his personal collection which was permanently exhibited in the small Bauhaus style building in the Grunewald area. With over 400 exhibits including paintings, drawings, watercolours, original graphic work, wood engravings and sculptures as well as archival material and craftwork from the artist themselves, the collection is the most comprehensive and enduring record of Die Brücke’s creative output and characteristic style.
