The Museum and its Branches

Clemens Sels Museum Neuss

 

The Clemens Sels Museum Neuss is notable for the diversity of its collection, which encompasses a broad spectrum of the history of art and culture. A prominent position is occupied by the art collection. Alongside major paintings from the Middle Ages and by 17th century Dutch painters, the works by the Nazarenes, Pre-Raphaelites and Symbolists make it a collection unique in Germany. Also represented are the Rhineland Expressionists with a superb selection of paintings, prints and stained glass. Additionally the Museum has comprehensive holdings of paintings and sculptures by Naïve artists who occupy an entirely distinct position within the art of the 20th century. In the area of contemporary art color painting is another focus of the Museum’s collection. Other sections give insight into pre- and early modern history, the historical and economic development of the city of Neuss and the rise of regional bourgeois culture. The archaeological department has fascinating finds from the Roman military camp in Neuss that was built in 16 BC. The collections are housed in two connecting buildings, the Obertor and the Deilmann Building, which is re-opening in 2015 after extensive renovations.
