Osthaus-Museum, Hagen - Ruhrgebiet Ost classics
City Guide Ruhrgebiet Ost: Osthaus Museum, Hagen
Osthaus-Museum, together with the extension of the new Emil Schumacher Museum, has added vitality to Hagen’s Museumsplatz since 2009. The two buildings share a foyer. Osthaus-Museum's permanent collection ranges from late Impressionism to Classical Modernism, from design to handicrafts and also includes a room with works by Christian Rohlfs. The contemporary art collection, containing impressive monochromatic paintings, is continually presented anew. The institution, founded in 1945, resides in the historical Folkwang building which Karl Ernst Osthaus had built as an Art-Nouveau-style museum in 1902 by Henry van de Velde. The historical furnishings have been reconstructed.
