Traces of Humanity - Berta Hummel
November 1st, 2014 to February, 2015

Berta M.I. Hummel - a name that has become a world-famous trademark because of the porcelain figurines. The march of fame for the „Hummel children“ began in the 1930’s and the porcelain children have been enjoyed by many generations of lovers of the figurines. For many years the versatility of the highly talented young artist remained hidden behind the idyllic world of the Hummel children. But there were many other sides to Berta Hummel. Many works of art from her university time in Munich, before she entered the convent and where she still signed her pictures with "Berta Hummel" remain today. We will be showing religious motives, landscape pictures and portraits.

In the last years more and more people have become interested in this other highly talented Berta Hummel, in her life and her art work. Her story is one of success, an attestation to her time, but also in some ways a tragedy.

The exhibition is planned until the end of February 2015. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 pm. On Sundays and holidays it is open from 10 a.m to 5 p.m.
