Otto Modersohn Museum
The museum was founded 30 years ago to provide the general public with access to pictures and drawings belonging to the family.
The exhibition rooms at the Otto Modersohn Museum in Fischerhude display selected works from the holdings of the Otto Modersohn Foundation, supplemented by pieces on loan from private collections.
Otto Modersohn, one of the founders of the Worpswede Artists' Colony, left Worpswede after the untimely death of his second wife Paula Modersohn-Becker and moved to Fischerhude, where he lived and worked for the rest of his life. In 1974 Christian Modersohn, the youngest son from his third marriage to Louise Modersohn-Breling, founded the Otto Modersohn Museum in Fischerhude. The museum, which makes the artist's legacy accessible to the public, has expanded significantly since then and undergone several extensions to achieve its current layout.
