“From Goya to Picasso” is the Neue Pinakothek’s motto. King Ludwig I founded the Neue Pinakothek in the mid 19th century as the first public museum in Europe that was to be devoted entirely to contemporary art. Masterpieces of Classicism, German Romanticism, Art Nouveau and Impressionism, the Nazarenes and the Deutschrömer painters are equally well represented as are the major precursors of modern art. Following its destruction in World War II, the present building – designed by the architect Alexander von Branca – opened its doors in 1981.
