Konrad Adenauer

In 1949, Milein Cosman was commissioned by the magazine Heute to draw portraits of Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and all the members of the first post-war government of the German Federal Republic.

In September 2019, the German Government Art Collection is marking the 70th anniversary of the post-war German state with a special exhibition of Milein Cosman’s work, featuring all her portraits of Adenauer’s cabinet.
