Neue Pinakothek – Munich
The Neue Pinakothek (New Painting Gallery) in Munich is a museum mostly dedicated to 19th-century art and Impressionism, located in the Kunstareal district.
The Gallery, founded in 1853 by King Ludwig I of Bavaria, is housed since 1981 in a post-modern building, due to the destruction of its original home during World War Two.
While the adjacent Alte Pinakothek houses the Bavarian State collection of artworks dating before the 19th century and the Pinakothek der Moderne displays modern and contemporary art, the Neue Pinakothek focuses on art from late-18th to early 20th century, with special attention to the art of the 19th century.
The collection of the Neue Pinakothek includes several paintings belonging to the German Romanticism and French Impressionism movements, with masterpieces by Friedrich Overbeck, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Böcklin, Renoir, Manet, Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Degas, Pissarro, and Sisley, among many others, but also paintings and sculptures by Goya, Courbet, Delacroix, Hogarth, Turner, Rodin, Van Gogh, Segantini and Picasso.
The museum organizes temporary exhibitions, guided tours, conferences, educational programs, and special events.
At the Neue Pinakothek, a museum shop and a restaurant are available to the visitors. The museum is accessible to people with disabilities, wheelchairs can be borrowed, free-of-charge.
