Visited the "Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany, 1937" near the end of its run at the Neue Galerie. Amazing, small venue well laid out, limited the amount of visitors so it was not too crowded. Very interesting!

We visited recently to see the "Degenerate Art" exhibit. The museum is small and very specialized with a few treasures including works by Klimt in the fabulous gold period style. But the star of the show was the side by side display of 2 triptychs, one of 4 blonde nudes representing the elements that apparently hung over Hitler's fireplace and... More

I went to Neue Galerie for Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany, 1937. Incredible to think this art was deemed “degenerate” by the Nazis. The exhibit ends on September 1, 2014. If you have an opportunity to view Degenerate Art elsewhere, don’t hesitate. Neue Galerie is housed in a beautiful 1914 mansion on Fifth Avenue’s Museum... More

I heard about the Degenerate Art show at the Neue Galerie and was thrilled to find we would be in NYC in time to catch the show. The show is a recreation of the original show put on by the Nazis in the early 1940s. It is well worth seeing but will be over soon, so get moving! The museum... More

This is a very nice museum focusing on European art. The collection is small but extremely intense. Don't miss this museum. Close to Guggenheim, definetely worth visiting at least an hour.

This small gallery that focuses on Austrian and German art fills a niche in the NY art scene. Klimt admirers will love the 2nd floor room with 4/5 Klimt paintings. The exhibits are also often not found else where like the current one on Nazi v. Degenerate art. The cafe, featuring Austrian food, is not to be missed.

This museum exhibits beautiful paintings from the beginning of the 19th century by viennese or german painters. There was a very interesting exhibition on the degenerate artists or so called by the nazis before world war II. There are also great furnitures and pieces of art deco silverware that you can even buy in the shop if you are with... More

Small well done boutique museum with the original Gustav Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, which in person is absolutely gorgeous, no print does it justice. Their current collection is called Degenerate, about modern painting in Germany and criticized by Hilter, however the collections change. Beautiful clocks from Vienna, and small silver ware items are just wonderful. Should not be missed... More
