Neue Pinakothek

Paintings from the 19th-century, and before and after
This museum basically picks up where the Alte Pinakothek leaves off, with a collection stretching, for the most part, from the late 18th- to the early 20th-century. The original 1853 building did not survive the Second World War; the current gallery, designed by Alexander von Brancas, opened in 1981 and is one of several prominent art museums in Munich's Kunstareal (art district). With a certain emphasis on German and French art, the very classy collection includes works by Caspar David Friedrich, Manet, Cézanne, David, Goya, Géricault, Crane, Liebermann, Overbeck, Gaughin and Gainsborough, among its 400-plus paintings on display.
