Municipal Gallery in Lenbach House, Munich

4.7
#8 of 42 in Museums in Munich
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.

    The Lenbachhaus allows to see a school founded by Kandinsky in Munich, the blaue reider, we knew nothing. Some beautiful paintings that alone are worth the visit. Another part is open to contemporary creation, and then there are always contrasting proposals, we love or you don't like. The building itself is interesting because the modern part is well connected to a building of the 19th century. In short, if you have a little time, it's worth to come.

    We revisit the Münter in Kandinsky aim last year, but looked at the likes. Good taste works exhibited during the building of the Spain style. This time I realized that was pretty snazzy behind the art house building.
