From the Romantics to Liebermann
Museum „Schlösschen im Hofgarten“
Strolling through the Hofgarten
The “Schlösschen im Hofgarten” museum is around 10 minutes’ walk from Wertheim’s Old Town. This Rococo jewel from 1777 was formerly the summer residence of
Count Friedrich Ludwig von Löwenstein-Wertheim-Virneburg.
Today it houses three excellent art collections:
“Gemälde und Aquarelle der Berliner Secession”
(Paintings and Watercolours of the Berlin Secession) comprises works by leading German impressionists such as Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, Max Slevogt
and Fritz v. Uhde.
The “Maler des 19. Jahrhunderts aus dem Rhein-Main-Neckar-Raum” (19th Century Artists from the Rhine-Main-Neckar Area) collection displays, for example,
paintings by Romantics and the artistic Realism of Carl Rottmann, Theodor Verhas and Bernhard Fries.
The “Porcelaine de Paris” (Porcelain of Paris) private collection exhibits a changing selection of porcelain pieces by Dagoty, Darte, Sèvres and other French manufacturers from the Napoleonic period.
The palace is surrounded by picturesque landscaped gardens. The park was laid out in 1814/16 in the English style and invites visitors to take a relaxing stroll.
Enjoy an afternoon with art on an international level right at the gates of Wertheim.
The tours through the museum, the special exhibitions and the park are an absolute must for art lovers.
