Hans Prinzhorn studied art history and philosophy at the University of Vienna and in 1919 he became an assistant to Karl Wilmanns at the psychiatric hospital of the University of Heidelberg. When he left in 1921, he had extended the hospital’s art collection, originally begun by Emil Kraepelin, to more than 5,000 works.
