Collecting at Via Del Corso: Drawings, Graphics and Books from the
20 years of Goethe's House in Rome and 30 years of collecting activity for the only German museum abroad. With its 71st Temporary Exhibition Collecting at the Course, the Goethe House takes the opportunity to present a selection of works from its collection including important recent acquisitions.

A must see event ! A unique opportunity to enjoy a great celebrating exhibition in a very special setting, meet new people, talk with artists and curators, make new friends in a cozy international atmosphere !

A room is dedicated to some album designs so far never exposed. They are the notepads of Friedrich Bury, roommate of Goethe in Rome in Via del Corso 18 and Friedrich Preller The Old, another artist personally close to Goethe. While in the albums of Preller we find drawings by Olevano and Rome, the seven Friedrich Bury notebooks testify to his work as a copyist of paintings and antique works but also reveal his talent for landscaping and show the artist's friends and acquaintances in their everyday life.

Following are a selection of precious drawings, including the rare Roman views of French artists Noel François Bertrand and Eugène-Louis Lequesne, as well as the collections of Goethe Jakob's friends Philipp Hackert, Albert Christoph Dies and Christoph Heinrich Kniep. And of course you can not miss the designs of Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein, the main tenant of the apartment at Course 18.

Another section features graphics, such as the Roman views of the English incisor James Merigot, the southern landscapes of the Saint-Neighbour's "Voyage pittoresque", sheets of the Tischbein "Homer, nach Antiken gezeichnet" (Homer drawn by antiquities) and the engravings that Francesco Bartolozzi made from the designs of painter Angelika Kauffmann, friend of Goethe in Rome.
The exhibition also features four short videos (Matheus donation) by renowned German photographer Christoph Brech (* Protected content is accompanied by the new General Catalog of the 20th anniversary collection.

The inauguration was scheduled for the 23th anniversary of Goethe's arrival at the artist's apartment at Via del Corso.
Dr. Günter Winands, General Director and Deputy Replacer of Federal Government for Culture and Media, Dr. Wolfgang Trautwein, President of ASKI and Director of the Goethe House, Dr. Maria Gazzetti, will pay a tribute
