Masterworks from the Neue Galerie New York
A beautiful collection catalogue with highlights from the Neue Galerie in New York
This book commemorates the fifteenth anniversary of the Neue Galerie New York and includes highlights of the museum's collection. The Neue Galerie New York opened in November 2001, when it showcased its collection of Austrian and German art from 1890 to 1940. The museum's Austrian holdings encompass major paintings by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, and Richard Gerstl.
The German holdings emphasise the Expressionist movement, with canvases by members of the Brücke, including Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Pechstein, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. Artists affiliated with the Blue Rider, such as Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, August Macke, Franz Marc, and Gabriele Münter, also figure prominently.
The New Objectivity movement is represented with works by Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, and Christian Schad. And finally, the Bauhaus is another key area, with designs by Marcel Breuer, Marianne Brandt, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Wilhelm Wagenfeld.
