You might know him for 'Faust', for his philosophy, for his scientific theories, for his dramatic works or for any number of other achievements, but one thing is certain: many consider Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to be the most important writer Germany ever produced, and his influence extended Europe-wide during his lifetime. He was born at number 23, Grosser Hirschgraben in Frankfurt am Main in August 1749, and the house where he grew up is now a museum dedicated to his childhood and family life. Adjacent to it is an art gallery, which contains paintings by Fuseli, Tischbein and Graff among others, depicting the progress of the artistic and cultural scene which surrounded Goethe's career.
