Kirchhoff: a Collector and Garden Enthusiast in Wiesbaden

Exactly 100 years ago, in 1917, Museum Wiesbaden presented the art collection of the collector and garden enthusiast Heinrich Kirchhoff (1874—1934) to the public for the first time. Once again, the museum devotes itself to Kirchhoff and his collection: Until February 25 it shows "Garden of the Avant-Garde. Heinrich Kirchhoff — A Collector of Jawlensky, Klee, Nolde …."

"In the 'garden of the Avant-Garde' 'Klee' is flourishing, but also Jawlensky and Nolde […]. The current exhibition in the Museum Wiesbaden explores, reconstructs and presents the collection of the Wiesbaden-based 'Privatie', today scattered all over the world", Dr. Martin Hoernes, Secretary General of the Siemens art foundation reports with joy.

The exhibition sketches the progress of Kirchhoff’s collection of contemporary avant-garde art in the two decades between 1914 and 1934 and traces, as such, the parallel development of German art from Impressionism (Corinth, Liebermann, Slevogt) to the varieties of Expressionism (Chagall, Kokoschka, Lehmbruck) through to Abstraction (Moholy-Nagy).

The exhibition tour starts in the historical octagon of the art gallery. Surrounded by the floral frescoes on the ceiling vault, the room is dedicated to the spirit of Kirchhoff and his passion for the combination of art and nature.
