About Pinakothek der Moderne
Barer Strasse 40
ADD TO LIST
The Neue (New) Pinakothek (art gallery) was built in 1981 and is dedicated to late 18th to early 20th century art. It replaced a namesake museum that lasted from 1853 until its destruction during World War II. Included is a strong (one of the best in the world) collection of 19th century German works, many of which came from the private collection of King Ludwig. International masters such as Goya, Gainsborough, van Gogh, Rodin, and the Impressionists are also featured. There are over 400 paintings on display at any given time from the Bavarian State Paintings Collection.

The Neue Pinakothek contains a nice array of 18th to early 20th century European art and sculpture. A significant part of the collection is from German artists who I wasn't as interested in (still of a high quality), but there is a good balance from other areas of Europe too. My favourites were the Van Goghs and Monet's Bridge at Argenteuil.
