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.

History - Museum Ludwig, Cologne

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.
