SUMMARY
In terms of variety and quality, the European paintings and sculpture in the Neue Pinakothek represent one of the world's best collections of nineteenth-century art. As with the Alte Pinakothek, the gallery's development was largely due to the artistic sensibilities of the Bavarian monarchy, in this case Ludwig I. Today, the collection he began offers a complete and outstanding survey of different schools, from Romanticism to Art Nouveau, with works by artists who range from Caspar David Friedrich to Schiele and Klimt. The museum's Impressionist art, from Manet and Gauguin to Liebermann and Corinth, is particularly impressive. Throughout the collection, alongside German and French works, the visitor will find masterpieces from England, Spain, and other European countries. This guide to the Neue Pinakothek provides an overview of the history of the gallery, as well as the art-historical importance of its collection. It contains 150 coloured plates, each with a short explanatory text.
