The collection offers a unique insight into the development of art in Berlin from the end of the 19th century until the Second World War. Special emphasis is placed on Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Functionalism as well as the Berlin Secession. Meanwhile, the museum building is a work of art in and of itself: Its décor includes period lamps, porcelain, glass, silver and carpets complete with the furniture, wall paintings and drawings.

Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Berlin Secession: Art in Transition

Curved lines, inspiration from nature and new symmetries: Visitors to the Bröhan Museum can follow how Art Nouveau found its way into the various arts and crafts. Under the influence of modern, futuristic art, Art Deco developed, particularly in France. In the Bröhan Museum, numerous works by the likes of Jean Puiforcat, Jacques Émile Ruhlmann and Gerrit Rietveld bear witness to this development. Finally, a rich collection of paintings and graphics brings visitors closer to the Berlin Secession with its turn towards Expressionism.

Highlights at the Bröhan Museum

The furniture ensemble by Alfred Grenander (circa 1900), the porcelain figurines by Agathon Léonard (1899), and the painting "In the Romanesque Café" by Willy Jaecke (1912) are just a few highlights of the collection at the Bröhan Museum. The museum's Art Nouveau porcelain collection is also particularly extensive, representing the most important manufactories in Germany, France and Scandinavia.
