Museum of Art Moritzburg

Castle Moritzburg was once the magnificent seat of the Archbishops of Magdeburg and has been home to the Halle art museum since 1904. Originally, it featured only craftwork but by 1920 modern painting and sculpture collections had been added as well. Amongst its holdings, the foundation counts collections of paintings, sculptures, graphic arts, photographs, craftwork and design, even coins and medallions. Highlights include artworks from the Classical Modern period and the nineteenth-century as well as medieval wood carvings. Works of Expressionist art are represented not only in the form of an in-house collection but via two collections permanently on loan to the Foundation as well— the Hermann Gerlinger collection and the Kracht collection. The museum also disposes of rich craftwork holdings as well as being home to the state numismatic collection. (‘Landesmünzkabinett’). In 2006, the Lyonel Feininger Gallery in Quedlinburg joined the Castle Moritzburg Foundation. The collection was supplemented by works from Classical Modern artists such as Lovis Corinth, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and Emil Nolde.
