Municipal Gallery in Lenbach House, Munich

(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Housed in the former residence of Franz von Lenbach, Municipal Gallery in Lenbach House was sold to the city in 1924 by the artist's widow. Shortly after, Munich's city art collections found a home together inside the building. The exhibits map out Germany's major art movements from the 19th century to present day. The Munich Secession group's work combined Impressionism, avant-garde, and Art Nouveau to create a style completely German. View their work and others in the 19th century gallery. A gallery dedicated to the Objectivity movement continues the journey through German art history. For art created after the end of World War II, visit the Art After 1945 gallery, where experiential, conceptual, and installation art dominates. The friendly layout includes an intimate restaurant in a modern structure overlooking the museum grounds.

And major modifications have been made here heading and added new 3-storey building is to the left and forward, the ground floor is devoted to reception, shops, exhibitions and large Cafe, old lambach's work was exhibited in the core 2nd floor room was intact, after the new location since 1945 and the planning exhibition of works on display. Located on the 3rd floor new blue Knight related work better together was exhibited. Different from the old maze-like exhibition, and had value. Overlooking the work of artists, Kandinsky, Münter, Marc was a member of the blue Knight Macke, yaw ren ski, Marianne von verevkin, can pending, McRae, and they are always great.

  • The spectacular collection of classical modernism with Kandinsky, Münter, Jawlenski, Macke, Marc, etc. Presented in a great extension of Norman Foster - the Foyer alone is worth a visit. And the Café also.
