The approximately 5,700 artworks of the Leopold Collection include around one thousand watercolors. Due to their sensitivity to light, such works on paper cannot be exhibited frequently. Many of these artworks have not been shown at all since the Leopold Museum was opened in 2001. To celebrate the upcoming 85th birthday of Professor Dr. Rudolf Leopold, who founded the Leopold Museum together with his wife, Dr. Elisabeth Leopold, the museum will be mounting a special exhibition featuring a selection of approximately 150 of these precious watercolors.
