Selections from the Permanent Collection

August 19-October 3, 2011

“Selections from the Permanent Collection” features highlights from the Neue Galerie’s superb holdings of German and Austrian fine and decorative arts from the first half of the twentieth century. It incorporates a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, photographs, and decorative arts. Though the exhibition is ongoing, the installation is updated regularly.

In the past, featured artists have included Austrian painters Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, and the designers of the Wiener Werkstätte. German movements such as the Brücke, the Blaue Reiter, Neue Sachlichkeit, and the Bauhaus have also been explored.

The painting Adele Bloch-Bauer I (1907) by Gustav Klimt is on permanent display as part of this exhibition.

The current installation will fill two galleries with Austrian art, featuring paintings and works on paper by artists Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Alfred Kubin.

Because only two galleries of art will be open to the public, admission to the museum will be pay-as-you-wish.
