Sammlung Prinzhorn (The Prinzhorn Collection)

The Prinzhorn Collection is the custodian of a worldwide exceptional body of work done by patients in psychiatric hospitals at the dawn of the 20th century, collated by the art historian and physician of the Heidelberg Psychiatric University hospital, Hans Prinzhorn from 1919 to 1921.

The Prinzhorn Collection comprises some 5000 works, the majority in pencil or crayons, together with paintings in oils and watercolours, fabric art, and wood sculptures. 435 patients/artists, including some 80 women, are represented in the collection. They were mostly committed to institutions in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and by and large diagnosed as "schizophrenic".
