The graphics collection

The observant visitor to the Gutenberg Museum will find a selection of printed graphics included at many points in the permanent display – yet there is much more, with a row of locked cabinets in the extension hinting at the vast extent of the museum stock.

Many thousands of prints are stored here and are currently being catalogued by computer.

The collection can be split into three main categories:

1. Depictions of printers and technical illustrations which naturally have pride of place in the Gutenberg Museum; 

2. Artists' prints which have also been collected as examples of various graphic techniques;

3. Donations and bequests made to the museum. These mostly consist of prints focusing on a particular subject and complied over many decades, packed with so much detail and information that they would be out of place in any day-to-day museum display. Among these bequests are the collections of print researcher Otto M. Lilien and artist Joseph Weisz, to name but two.

The graphics collection is not on general display. Requests to view the collection can be made to the secretarial office of the museum on +49(0)6131/12-26 40.
