“My dear Mr. Düttmann, now that the furore of the opening has died down, I would like to waste no time in thanking you most sincerely once again. Your building for Brücke-Museum is a creation one can’t help but praise … The building has good proportions and correct dimensions throughout … and the landscape has been incorporated in a way that is nothing short of exhilarating. It will no doubt bring cheer to each and every visitor while they are here … Yours always, KSR” … More

Important Acquisition

Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Portrait R. S., 1915, oil on canvas

Thanks to the support of the Karl and Emy
Schmidt-Rottluff Stiftung and the Ernst von Siemens Kunststiftung, the Brücke-Museum was able to acquire the important painting from 1915. The portrait shows the Hamburg art historian Rosa Schapire (1874–1954). She was a close friend and important patron of Schmidt-Rottluff as well as an early passive member of the Brücke artist's group. She promoted and supported the artists of the Brücke early and intensively. The painting is on display in the exhibition Escape into Art? until 11 August 2019.
