Museum Folkwang and the German Poster Museum
A poster by Gunter Rambow and Gerhard Lienemeyer, 1968
Museum Folkwang is a major collection of 19th and 20th century art in Essen, Germany. The museum was established in 1922 by merging the Essener Kunstmuseum, which was founded in 1906, and the private Folkwang Museum of the collector and patron Karl Ernst Osthaus in Hagen, founded in 1901.
Around 120,000 poster graphics are preserved by the German Poster Museum in its archives - an independent collection quite unique in Germany. Classics of artistic poster design by artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Thorn Prikker, or Behrens, can be found here as well as posters representative of the latest styles. Posters from the German speaking countries, from Eastern Europe, and the USA provide geographic focal points for the collection.
Hours: Tuesday - Sunday 10am - 6pm; Friday open until 10pm.
