The Horst Janssen Exhibition

The Horst-Janssen-Museum presents its guests different works by the artist upon every visit. The delicate drawings and graphic works are exchanged every three months to ensure the best possible conservation. On at least one of the museum’s three floors we exhibit his drawings, watercolours, etchings, woodcuts and lithographs. Often there are also special exhibitions on individual topics.

His last workroom, which he used in Hamburg at the St. Gertrude publishing house, is originally set up in the museum. The press of his printer Hartmut Frielinghaus, on which hundreds of his etchings were printed, can also be admired. A baby grand piano painted by Janssen and a silk carpet made according to his designs are also on display.
