EXTENSION OF THE STÄDEL MUSEUM

Since its foundation in 1815, the Städel Museum has continually expanded its holdings by pursuing an active acquisition policy. The collection presently encompasses some 2,900 paintings, 600 sculptures, 500 photographs and more than 100,000 drawings and prints. With this rich inventory, the Städel presents a survey of seven hundred years of European art history – from the early fourteenth century to the Renaissance, the Baroque, early modern art and the present. Among the highlights of the internationally renowned holdings are works by Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Dürer, Sandro Botticelli, Rembrandt and Jan Vermeer, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Beckmann, Francis Bacon and Gerhard Richter. The area of contemporary art has gained in importance in the past years through the transfer of six hundred works from the Deutsche Bank collection and more than two hundred photographs from that of the DZ BANK in 2008, as well as through donations and a stringent purchasing policy. By these means, the Städel collection has been enhanced with works by such renowned artists as Georg Baselitz, Olafur Eliasson, Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Martin Kippenberger, Sigmar Polke, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, Wolfgang Tillmans and Victor Vasarely.
