The Broehan Museum

The Broehan (Bröhan) Museum specializes in Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Functionalism (1889-1939) of international provenance. The collection has two areas of primary interest: decorative arts and painting. The art objects are arranged in room ensembles for presentation. These ensembles aim at giving a representative synopsis of the period from Art Nouveau – as a precursor of modern design – up to Art Deco and Functionalism by way of chosen pieces of glass, ceramics, porcelain, silver and metal work in combination with furniture, carpets and lighting as well as prints and painting. The collection illustrates the equal value of each area of artistic production. It gives priority to works of French and Belgian as well as of German and Scandinavian Art Nouveau besides ensembles of French Art Deco. The Bröhan-Museum houses an exceptionally rich collection of porcelain from distinguished manufactures (KPM Berlin, Royal Copenhagen, Meissen, Nymphenburg, Sèvres etc.) as well as pieces of metal and glass works from the most important artists and designers of the time including early industrial design.
