Stuttgart State Gallery
The Stuttgart State Gallery moved to a stunning new building, designed by architect and Pritzker Architecture Prize winner James Stirling, in 1984. The artwork on display here spans eight centuries.
The State Gallery balances its roots in Württemberg's history with the international approach it has adopted without fail since the Second World War. Home to artwork spanning eight centuries, the New State Gallery's collection is world class. The focus is on art from 1800 to 1900 and works from the 20th century. Paintings by Caspar David Friedrich, Anselm Feuerbach, Édouard Manet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne represent the 19th century.
When it comes to the 20th century, exceptional individual works stand alongside impressive ensembles, with thanks to the likes of Paul Klee, Max Beckmann, Pablo Picasso, Oskar Kokoschka, Georg Baselitz and Anselm Kiefer. Art produced after 1945 also has its place here, including examples of International Abstraction, Pop Art, Concept Art, Minimalism, Land Art and more recent movements. The collection is complemented further by artwork from earlier periods, up to and including paintings from the German Baroque era. Opening times: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday: 10 am–5 pm, Thursday: 10 am–8 pm
