A treasure trove of art from China, Korea and Japan. Opened in 1913, the Museum of East Asian Art was the first of its kind in Germany.
The collection of the museum's founder, Adolf Fischer and his wife Frieda Bartdorff forms the core of the holdings. Their collection of Buddhist paintings and wooden sculpture, Japanese screen paintings, colour woodcuts and lacquer art is considered one of the most important in Europe. The new building, opened in 1977, is a major monument of classical modern architecture in Cologne. It was designed by Kunio Maekawa, a student of Le Corbusier.
