Pictures and objects

Many depictions focusing on Ludwig van Beethoven's person and his artistic work were already created during the 19th century. Out of this abundance of objects, the Beethoven-Haus owns numerous examples.

Pictures and paintings of Beethoven are the largest group. Most of them were created after his death. They give evidence of the myth around the composer and his continuing charisma. The paintings from Beethoven's lifetime are of a particular biographical value.

Depictions of family members, contemporaries and friends of the composer as well as the locations where he lived or stayed at temporarily, illustrate Beethoven's environment.

Coins and medals were embossed to honour the composer. And his face is featured on a number of stamps, but access is not possible here.

Objects owned by Beethoven as well as relics and historical music instruments fall into a particular category.
