About Neue Galerie NY
Neue Galerie New York is a museum devoted to early 20th-century German and Austrian art and design. The collection features art from Vienna circa 1900, exploring the special relationship that existed between the fine arts (of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, Richard Gerstl, and Alfred Kubin), the decorative arts (created at the Wiener Werkstatte by such well-known figures as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Dagobert Peche), and by celebrated architects (such as Adolf Loos, Joseph Urban, and Otto Wagner).
The German art collection represents various movements of the early 20th century: the Blaue Reiter and its circle (Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, August Macke, Franz Marc, Gabriele Munter); the Brucke (Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Hermann Max Pechstein, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff); the Bauhaus (Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, Oskar Schlemmer); the Neue Sachlichkeit (Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Christian Schad); as well as applied arts from the German Werkbund (Peter Behrens) and the Bauhaus (Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Wilhelm Wagenfeld). Special temporary exhibitions rotate in the galleries throughout the year.
