Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg is distinguished by a unique collection of modern sculpture. The focus is – as would be expected – on Wilhelm Lehmbruck's key works. The work of the Duisburg-born artist, which can be classified as Classical Modernism, contrasts with sculptures from other epochs: The spectrum ranges from primitive and cubist sculptural works to abstract and expressionist works of art to constructivist and minimalist masterpieces. A visit to the Lehmbruck Museum is an absolute must for all sculpture enthusiasts!
At the Lehmbruck Museum, works of art from all over the world are strung together
In the Lehmbruck Museum you regularly have the opportunity to encounter figurative art by Constantin Brâncuşi, Pablo Picasso or Alberto Giacometti, and in contrast abstract works from Europe and the USA by Ulrich Rückriem or Richard Artschwager. If you are interested in the extended sculpture concept, you are at the right address in the Lehmbruck Museum Duisburg: In changing exhibitions, the museum repeatedly devotes itself to the question of what sculptural art means today.
Sculpture courtyard and adjoining park invite you to discover large sculptures
The Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg is surrounded by the Immanuel-Kant-Park, encompassing approximately seven hectares: The museum building and the adjoining sculpture courtyard, which merges into the adjacent public park, are located in the centre of Duisburg.
