New National Gallery

The New National Gallery (Neue Nationalgalerie) was opened in 1968 as the counterpart to the Nationalgalerie located on the Museumsinsel Berlin (Museums Island Berlin) in the eastern part of the city. As part of the Reunification, a collection of 20th century art is now located in the spectacular building by Mies van der Rohe.Insofar as the whole museum building is not being used as a separate exhibition venue on the occasion of major exhibitions, the Nationalgalerie presents its spectrum of works here which ranges from Classical Modern down to Art of the 1960s and 70s. The focus of the collection is on works by representatives of cubism, expressionists, of the Bauhaus, surrealism of the Group Zero and of American color-field painting as well as artists like Pablo Picasso, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, Max Beckmann, Otto Dix and from the era after 1945 Yves Klein, Lucio Fontana, Barnett Newman, Morris Louis.
