“The Genesis of German Panel Painting”
Unique opportunities to compare and contrast masterpieces from the two museums revealed fresh viewing contexts and sharpened the perception of selected aspects. This four-year project not only offered a series of art historical highlights, it also represented an essential component of the Städel Museum’s overall concept, which focuses on the mediation and contextualisation of the collection.
