In 1994 Peter and Irene Ludwig gifted ninety works from their Picasso holdings to the City of Cologne, with the stipulation that the Wallraf-Richartz Museum be relocated to a building of its own.
Peter Ludwig, the institution’s namesake, did not live to see the reopening of the Museum Ludwig on November 1, 2001, but Irene Ludwig marked the occasion by donating an additional 774 works by Picasso. With them the Museum Ludwig has the third largest Picasso collection worldwide, after Barcelona and Paris, and offers a representative cross section of all the genres, materials, and techniques explored by the artist. Since 2000 the Museum Ludwig has been particularly devoted to collecting and presenting technical media in the area of contemporary art.
