Collection of Prints and Drawings

in Wilhelmshöhe Castle

Graphische Sammlung

The Collection of Prints and Drawings includes approx. 50,000 drawings, graphic prints, posters and illustrated books.

Their origins can be traced back to the early 17th century. Portrait engravings, maps, topographical views, representations of festivities and, since the 18th century, reproduction prints were the main focus points of the landgraves' collection of copper engravings, the stock of which is bound into valuable leather-bound volumes. Today, the collection is also focussing on the Kassel academy artists, the artist families Tischbein, Ruhl and Nahl, in the area of architectural drawing and as far as modern art is concerned, the works of "bridge" artists and informal art. The stock of the Collection of Prints and Drawings can be viewed by prior appointment by telephone, in the reading room of the library.
