Neue Pinakothek (New Pinakothek) is an art museum in Munich, Germany.
Its focus is European Art of the 18th and 19th century and is one of
the most important museums of art of the nineteenth century in the
world. Together with the Alte Pinakothek and the Pinakothek der Moderne
it is part of Munich's "Kunstareal" (the "art area").
The new home of the Neue Pinakothek, opened in 1981
Neue Pinakothek 1880
museum was founded by the former King Ludwig I of Bavaria in 1853. The
original building constructed by Friedrich von Gärtner and August von
Voit was destroyed during World War II. The ruin of the Neue Pinakothek
was demolished in 1949. Designed by architect Alexander Freiherr von
Branca the new postmodern building with features such as arched
windows, keystones, bay windows and stairways, opened in 1981. It
combines a concrete construction with a stone facade design.
Gauguin's The Birth of Christ (1896), which brought Hugo von Tschudi to Munich and became the foundation of the Pinokathek's modern art collection
Ludwig began to collect contemporary art already as crown prince in 1809 and his collection has been steadily enlarged. When the museum was founded, the separation to the old masters in the Alte Pinakothek was fixed with the period shortly before the turn of the 19th century, which has become a prototype for many galleries.
Owing to the personal preference of Ludwig I there was initially a strong focus on paintings of German Romanticism and the Munich School. Also dynastic considerations played a role as Greece had become a secundogeniture of Bavaria in 1832. In 1834 Carl Rottmann travelled to Greece to prepare for a commission from Ludwig for a cycle of great Greek landscapes which was installed in the Neue Pinakothek, where the paintings were given their own hall.
The so-called Tschudi Contribution between 1905 and 1914 brought the Pinokathek an extraordinary collection of masterpieces of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Hugo von Tschudi was dismissed by Kaiser Wilhelm as a penalty for his bringing Gauguin's The Birth of Christ into the National Gallery in Berlin. He went on to become the director of the Pinokathek. As general director of the State Collections, Tschudi acquired 44 paintings, nine sculptures and 22 drawings, mostly from emerging French artists. Since public funds could not be used to purchase these works, Tschudi’s associates raised the money from private contributions after his death in 1911.
The delimitation to the modern painters displayed in the Pinakothek der Moderne was later fixed by taking the restart of Henri Matisse and the Expressionists into account (ca. 1900). Consequentially a painting of Matisse acquired by the "Tschudi Contribution" is now displayed in the Pinakothek der Moderne.
In 1915, the Neue
Pinakothek became the property of the Bavarian state. A self-portrait
of Vincent van Gogh was confiscated in 1938 by the Nazi regime as
degenerate art and sold one year later.
museum is under supervision of the Bavarian State Painting Collections
which houses an expanded collection of more than 3.000 European
paintings from classicism to art nouveau. About 400 paintings and 50
sculptures of these are exhibited in the New Pinakothek.
