Von der Heydt Museum

The Von der Heydt Museum is a museum in Wuppertal, Germany.

The Von der Heydt Museum includes works by artists from the 17th century to the present time. The first of Pablo Picasso’s works that ever appeared in public was displayed here.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The museum is housed in the former city hall of Elberfeld, which in 1902 became a municipal museum.

The museum was named in 1961 after the Von der Heydt family. Banker August von der Heydt (1851–1929) and his son Eduard von der Heydt (1882–1964) were important patrons.[1]
