Since 1897, the Graphic Collection at the Art Historic Institute functions as teaching and art collection for the practice orientated education of students and is also available to the art interested public. Visitors can – upon request – have originals placed in the study hall for them. During the semester, small thematic exhibitions are also there to be seen. The collection includes art on paper since around 1500 until today, as well as important private foundations: the collection Max Kade (New York), the collection Rieth with Art Self-portraits, the collection Heide and Wolfgang Voelter (Tübingen), the foundation of graphic print by the “Sprayer from Zürich”, Harald Naegeli, and foundations by the Tübingen Kunsthistorische Gesellschaft e.V. (Art Historic Society e.V.) on present art.
