The legacy of a painters couple

The Overbeck-Museum is an art museum in Bremen, Germany, dedicated to the works of Fritz Overbeck and his wife, Hermine Overbeck-Rohte, who both belonged to the circle of artists who first lived and worked in the artist’s colony of Worpswede around 1900.

The museum displays numerous oil paintings, drawings, etchings and watercolors of both artists in a changing selection throughout the year. Special exhibitions include works by other artists from Worpswede as well as contemporary works of today’s artists who relate in some way to the works of Fritz and Hermine Overbeck.

All children and teenagers up to the age of 18 enjoy free admission in the Overbeck-Museum. Situated in a neighbourhood with many social difficulties, the Overbeck-Museum strives to create an open, welcoming atmosphere for everybody, so that especially families and young children of all kinds of background feel encouraged to come in and participate in what the museum has to offer.

The main artists who lived and worked here:

Fritz Overbeck (1869 – 1909)
Hermine Overbeck-Rohte (1869 – 1937)
