After four decades of unbroken use as a museum and exhibition space, the Neue Pinakothek (rebuilt in its current form in the 1970s) has had to shut its doors for extensive renovation and modernization work due to last several years. During this period, selected major works of 19th century painting and sculpture from its collection will be on display in the Alte Pinakothek and at the Sammlung Schack. Selected highlights range from key works of Neoclassicism and Romanticism to the dawn of Modernism.
In the Alte Pinakothek’s Lower Gallery, a selection of around 90 paintings and sculptures from the Neue Pinakothek’s collection is on display in three main galleries and seven side rooms. The concentration of works has brought forth new constellations and unexpected encounters between the exhibits.
