• The important chronicler Heinrich Zille portrays his Berlin "Miljöh" (milieu) at the turn of the century in a pointed and astute manner.
• Around 1900 a broader public became aware of Zille thanks to his drawings, which were also published in well-known magazines like "Simplicissimus" and "Jugend".
• Large Zille collections are in the Kupferstichkabinett of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (purchased in 1921) and the world's most extensive one in the Mülheim an der Ruhr Art Museum
