“Rediscover the 19th Century”
Dear visitors, on 31 December 2018 the Neue Pinakothek will close to the public for structural reasons and in preparation for a comprehensive renovation scheme. A selection of masterpieces of 19th-century art will be shown from the summer of 2019 onwards on the groundfloor of the Alte Pinakothek (East Wing) and in the Sammlung Schack.
“Rediscover the 19th Century” is the motto of the Neue Pinakothek. A richly varied tour provides an opportunity to view paintings and sculptures of the Neoclassical, Romantic, Impressionist, Art Nouveau and Gründerzeit periods and to encounter masterpieces by major pioneers of Modern art: Max Liebermann, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne. Regularly presented thematic exhibitions and accompanying events, such as concerts and readings in the Neue Pinakothek, expand and deepen this spectrum.
The original edifice of the Neue Pinakothek was built from 1846-53 at the behest of Ludwig I, King of Bavaria, to house his collection of contemporary art of the time, which was intended to be the most important of its kind in Germany. Accessible to the general public from the outset, the Neue Pinakothek was thus the first museum in the world devoted to the permanent presentation of works by contemporary artists. After its complete destruction during the Second World War, the architect Alexander von Branca was entrusted with the design of the current building, which opened its doors in 1981.
