An insight into the pictorial and intellectual world of 19th century Germany
With around 180 paintings by German artists, including well known works by Arnold Böcklin, Moritz von Schwind, Franz von Lenbach, Hans von Marées and Anselm Feuerbach, the Sammlung Schack ranks as one of the most important museums devoted to German painting of the 19th century. The Collection was established through the efforts of the collector and art patron Count Adolf Friedrich von Schack (1815-1894), and has remained unchanged in its formation since his death.

Thus, it primarily contains history paintings and landscapes, but only a few examples (Carl Spitzweg) of genre painting, which was popular at the time. The landscape paintings visually capture the Mediterranean countries: Italy, Greece and, not least, Spain, which the Count knew intimately - more than most of his contemporaries - from his extensive travels there. In addition to works by German artists of the time, Count Schack collected copies of 16th and 17th century masterpieces, most notably by Venetian artists, ranging from Giorgione and Titian to Tintoretto and Veronese. The Sammlung Schack thereby represents not only an important documentation of art collecting in Germany, but is, at the same time, a unique museum of the late romantic period, providing visitors with insight into the attendant yearnings and dreams, as well as the world of images of this era that was shaped by journeys, literature, myths and ideals.
