From the Director
Welcome to Neue Galerie New York, a museum devoted to early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design.
This summer, we are pleased to present “Eclipse of the Sun: Art of the Weimar Republic,” which is centered around a landmark loan from the Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington, New York. In George Grosz's monumental painting Eclipse of the Sun (1926), the artist vividly captures the rampant political and social corruption that characterized Germany in the mid-1920s. “Austrian Masterworks from Neue Galerie New York” is also on view, featuring highlights from the museum’s extensive collection of Austrian art from the period 1890 to 1940, including major works by Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin, and Egon Schiele. The world renowned Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Gustav Klimt is part of this presentation, and shimmers bright.
Through Labor Day, the Neue Galerie is offering reduced admission, as our third-floor galleries will be closed in preparation for an exceptional exhibition, which opens in Fall 2019: “Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.” We hope you join us for a visit, and enjoy these summer days in New York City.
