MODERN ART 1800—1945

The Städel Museum’s Modern Art holdings offer a concentrated survey of some 150 years of European painting and sculpture enhanced by significant contributions from the medium of photography. The chief emphasis is on German and French painting, which is represented with key works of modern art history by Manet, Renoir, Monet, Picasso, Marc, Kirchner, Beckmann and others. The world-renowned masterpieces of Realism, Impressionism, Symbolism and Expressionism are moreover complemented by a wealth of surprising departures from the usual canon.
