House of Feuerbach

Speyer

The birthplace of Anselm Feuerbach (1829–1880) is now a memorial site, study library and archive for the famous painter and his family.

 

The artist rose to fame primarily thanks to his large antique and mythological paintings with a muted colourist style. The painter's grandfather, Paul Johann Anselm Ritter von Feuerbach, was a prominent jurist, and his father, Johann Anselm Feuerbach, a classical philologist and archaeologist.

 

The association Feuerbachhaus Speyer e.V. restored the house with the support of citizens, craftsmen and companies of the city of Speyer and the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

The three rooms on the upper floor display original paintings and drawings, autographs, documents and books. The ground floor is a "place of civic meeting" with a lounge and several meeting, exhibition and conference rooms.
