Owner description: With its rich collection of masterworks dating from the fourteenth century to the present, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart is among Germany’s most popular museums. Both its impressive museum complex and its holdings mirror the link between tradition and modernity. The Staatsgalerie Stuttgart presents its superb collection on some 9,000 square metres of exhibition space offered by the old building of 1843, the famous post-modern Stirling Building, and the Steib Halls constructed in 2002. Among the prominent holdings are the approximately 400,000 works belonging to the Department of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, Early Swabian panel painting and outstanding examples of nineteenth-century Swabian Neoclassicism. The chief emphasis of the museum collection is undoubtedly the Classical Modern period with art spanning the years from 1900 to 1980. Special highlights here are Oskar Schlemmer’s Figurines for the Triadic Ballet of the early 1920s, Henri Matisse’s famous Backs (1909-‒30), numerous works by Picasso including the sculptural group The Bathers (1956), and the Joseph Beuys room installed by the artist himself.

I had visited the Staatsgalerie in 2009 and had a great time. While not the largest art museum it had a great section on classical pieces as well as a separate wing on modern art.

This time around the museum was closed for refurbishment though they did have a Munch Exhibit which was fascinating.

Keep in mind the museum only has one of the print versions and NOT the original painting, still the exhibition is quite fascinating.

Rembrandt, Picasso, Juan Gris, Giacometti, French impressionists, German expressionists, and a variety of other artists. Some modern art at the end of the tour is not to everybody's taste, but the rest of the collection more than makes up for it.

Some of the temporary exhibitions are particularly worthwhile; right now, there is an exhibition of Munch's work.

Edvard Munch was born 150 years. He had a long association with the Staatsgalerie and to honor him this year they have a special exhibit of 60 of his works. Included is the original print of The Scream. This is well worth a visit.

Worth a visit for the current OP + POP exhibition, with few, but good pieces on display, including examples of the artists instructions during the printing process.
The entrance fee gives you also access to the permanent exhibition with an eclectic mix of works from the 1300's to today.
Nice way to spend a rainy afternoon - if it's sunny you can also enjoy a coffee on the terrace of the new section of the building.

An outstanding gallery with a brilliant range of paintings from Rembrandt , Reubens, Hals to Picasso ( search for Woman killing a cockerel) and Otto Dix . The building too is wonderfully spacious and relaxing , designed by the British architect Stirling it complements the collection perfectly.The main collection is also supported by frequent special exhibitions.
