Horst Janssen Museum | i |
name: Horst Janssen Museum
location: Oldenburg (Germany)

The museum shows the biography of Horst Janssen and his work in well assembled groups: drawings and water colours, cycles of etchings, wood carvings, lithographies, posters and illustrations. Landscape, erotic, portraits, still life and ever again the self portrait characterize his extensive work. There are terminals for information and films, together with classical text boards, giving a good insight in the work of a genius-artist and a personality very of his own mind. Horst Janssen’s study is reconstructed and gives an emphatic impression of his surroundings and his way of working.

The museum also deals with artists and artistic orientations which have influenced Horst Janssen. A large space devoted to alternating exhibitions shows three or four times a year art works which are in very different ways related to those of Horst Janssen. Informations about the current exhibitions are available under www. horst-janssen-museum.de. Considering the contemporary graphic arts, the Claus-Hüppe-Foundation dedicates regularly the Horst-Janssen-award for graphics , always accompanied by an exhibition of the work of the prizewinner.
