Masterworks of the Neue Galerie
“Masterworks of the Neue Galerie” is being organized in honor of the fifteenth anniversary of the founding of the Neue Galerie New York. The show will run from July 14, 2016 through January 16, 2017.
The Neue Galerie opened in November 2001, when it showcased its permanent collection of Austrian and German fine and decorative arts from the period 1890 to 1940. The museum’s Austrian collection is noted for significant paintings by Gustav Klimt and his contemporaries, in particular Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, and Richard Gerstl. In the decorative arts, works made by the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops, 1903-32) are another strength.
The German holdings emphasize the Expressionist movement, with canvases by members of the Brücke (Bridge), including Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Pechstein, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, and also artists affiliated with the Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider), such as Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, August Macke, Franz Marc and Gabriele Münter. The Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) movement is also addressed, with important selections by Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, and Christian Schad. In the decorative arts, the Bauhaus is a special area of emphasis, with major examples of design by Marcel Breuer, Marianne Brandt, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Wilhelm Wagenfeld.
