Directions to Neue Pinakothek
The neue Pinakothek (new picture gallery) was the first museum for contemporary art. The museum provides an overview of European art from the Enlightenment to the early days of Modernism. Following the complete destruction of the original building during the Second World War, the architect Alexander von Branca was commissioned to design the present museum which opened its doors in 1981.
The collection itself was assembled by Ludwig I of Bavaria and forms the corpus of the museum’s holdings, comprising landscapes, genre scenes and history painting in particular. Works by the German Romantic artists form one focus and include paintings by Caspar David Friedrich, Karl Blechen and the Nazarenes Schadow and Overbeck. Works by von Schwind and Spitzweg, as well as of the so called German Romans von Marées, Feuerbach and Böcklin also formed part of Ludwig I’s collection.
Famous pre-Impressionist painters such as Menzel, Leibl and his circle intensified the use of a painterly characteristic style in their works and represent the transition to German Impressionism represented by Liebermann, Corinth and Slevogt.
Works by Courbet, Cézanne, Renoir, van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse and Rodin, virtually unknown at that time, add to the importance of the collection in the Neue Pinakothek, as do major works by Manet, Monet and Klimt.
