Max Beckmann Archive

Max Beckmann Archive

The Max Beckmann Archive has more than 5,000 letters in its care, including almost 200 autographs from Max Beckmann in addition to about 6,000 photographs, 60,000 newspaper cuttings and well over 800 specialist publications. Unpublished writings, such as lectures and master’s theses, are also among the ever-growing collection along with video and audio recordings. A separate file is opened for each of Max Beckmann’s works and for various persons from his circle. The archive is managed by the charitable organisation Max Beckmann Gesellschaft e.V.

The archive’s holdings are continually expanding thanks to new acquisitions and donations. One of its responsibilities is to ensure that the catalogues of paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures as well as the bibliography are kept up to date. The archive is also committed to furthering research on Beckmann through its own publications, the journals of the Max Beckmann Archive, exhibitions and regular lectures.
