The Folkwang Museum was founded in 1922, based on the collection of arts patron Karl Ernst Osthaus.
Since then the museum has forged a global reputation, which it owes to its outstanding collections of 19th century German and French painting, classical modernist and post-1945 art. Exhibits include masterpieces by van Gogh, Cézanne, Gauguin, Braque, Renoir, Monet, Munch, Turner, Picasso, Warhol, Pollock, Dalí and Baselitz. The photographic collection illustrates the history of photography with more than 50,000 exhibits dating back to the 1920s.
