Museum in the Schmidt-Haus
The house of the painter, architect and graphic artist Karl-Schmidt Wolfratshausen (1891-1971)
He was born in Wolfratshausen but since World War I, he had his permanent address at Nabburg, this is where his father has been serving as a doctor for ten years. The artist, who was well-known and popular in Nabburg and far beyond, was especially characterized by his versatility and his tireless creative activity. His paintings reflect the Oberpfälzer landscape and the ”Nabburger Land“ (area around Nabburg) in particular.
His house, known as “Söldnerhaus“ (house of the mercenary) , which he decorated with painted-over Sgraffito for the millennium occasion celebration of Nabburg in 1930, was passed on to the town of Nabburg together with the artistic property and its inventory. ”Carpe diem!- Seize the day!“ is what the artist wrote on the façade of his house in 1930.
