Benutzungsordnung Bibliothek

Study hall

The Study Room of the Prints and Drawings Department is open to you every Thursday. The study room offers the opportunity for a very personal encounter with works of art on paper – be they drawings, prints or photographs. Anyone interested can have originals from the rich holdings of the Prints and Drawings Department presented to them here. Our team of curators will be happy to advise you on your selection.

We ask for your understanding that, for reasons of conservation, we can only present outstanding sheets if there is a justified interest in research.

Due to limited space, we kindly ask you to register in advance at: graphische.sammlung@staatsgalerie.bwl.de
