The Lenbachhaus gallery in Munich houses paintings and sculptures from classical modernism and the present day.
The original house was built in the 19th century for the 'painter prince' Franz von Lenbach. The gallery's collection of works by the Blue Rider artist group of Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Münter, Franz Marc, August Macke and Paul Klee is famed around the world. Masterpieces of 19th century painting and an extensive collection of international contemporary art are on display in the converted artist house and the new extension.
