Neue Galerie New York

Neue Galerie New York Museum for German and Austrian Art The mission of the Neue Galerie New York is to collect, preserve, research, and exhibit fine and decorative art of Germany and Austria from the first half of the twentieth century.

The museum collection covers a range of media, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, decorative arts, and photographs created in Austria and Germany between 1890 and 1940. The extended Neue Galerie collection is comprised of works belonging to Ronald S. Lauder, to the Estate of Serge Sabarsky, and to the museum itself. The Austrian material emphasizes the special relationship that existed in Vienna circa 1900 between the fine and decorative arts. Major artists in the field of fine arts include Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin, and Richard Gerstl. Decorative arts include the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops) and the designs of such well-known figures as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Dagobert Peche. The architects Adolf Loos and Otto Wagner are also represented. The collection of German art focuses on important movements of the early twentieth century. Max Beckmann, as well as Expressionist artists Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Emil Nolde, receive special attention. The Bauhaus is well represented, with strength in the area of decorative arts. Artists of note who were affiliated with the Bauhaus include Theodor Bogler, Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, László Moholy-Nagy, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Oskar Schlemmer, and Wilhelm Wagenfeld. Holdings of Neue Sachlichkeit material include both well-known and less familiar artists, including Albert Birkle, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Karl Hubbuch, Felix Nussbaum, and Georg Scholz.

Birthday wishes to Albrecht Durer!

The genre of the self-portrait can be traced back to the Renaissance and, more precisely, to the figure of Albrecht Dürer. In 1500, when he was only 28 years old, Dürer painted an iconic frontal self-portrait and brazenly signed and dated it, marking a milestone in the history of art. Dürer’s groundbreaking achievement was recognized even during his lifetime.

We hope you’re enjoying the great outdoors this weekend. Perhaps you can go on an adventure and explore a new town nearby?

In 1908, artists and romantic partners Vasily Kandinsky and Gabriele Münter, enjoyed a sojourn in the bucolic village of Murnau in the Bavarian Alps. They were charmed by the experience and went on to paint many scenes featuring the picturesque town and its environs. Kandinsky's, “Murnau: Street with Women,” pictured here, dates to the initial year of their visit. This painting still shocks today with its bold brushstrokes and jarring palette–blue, green, red, and yellow all clash and vibrate together like cymbals. In the lower right corner, a trio of women gazes at the viewer as if startled during their daily stroll. The vivid colors, disassociated from representational forms, reflect Kandinsky's response to the French Fauves, whose radical work he had seen firsthand in Paris. Kandinsky had visited the city when his own art–paintings, woodcuts, and decorative pieces–were included in the 1906 Salon d'Automne. The large scale of “Murnau: Street with Women”–-over 2 by 3 feet–captures some of the awe that Kandinsky must have felt in the aftermath of his trip to Paris, as if learning to see anew.

Happy #ArborDay! Do you have a favorite tree to sit under? 🌳 🌲 🌳

Richard Gerstl spent a few holidays in Gmunden, a picturesque spa town south of Salzburg on the Traunsee. While there, Gerstl painted at least fifteen landscapes en plein air. They are loosely executed with heavy impasto, and are redolent with “loops, strokes, spots, spirals, and whorls.” Captivated by the verdant landscape, Gerstl turned out scenes of gardens and fruit trees burgeoning with ripe fruit. These exceptional landscapes capture the lush beauty of a summer day.

Happy #EarthDay! 🌎 We celebrate the natural beauty of the land we inhabit, a subject that has been interpreted by artists through the ages.

Gustav Klimt's landscape paintings bring to light a lesser known aspect of the artist's oeuvre, proving that his mastery extends beyond renowned portraits of Viennese society to evocative depictions of nature. Klimt experimented with composition and style in his landscapes, and many of these are considered his most exquisite works. Few in number, these paintings are made even more precious by their very scarcity.

To learn more about this part of the great Austrian artist’s practice, we recommend “Gustav Klimt: Landscapes” by Stephan Koja, available at shop.neuegalerie.org.

Sending 100 birthday wishes to Amos Vogel, the influential cineaste and curator who was born #OnThisDay in 1921!

Born in Vienna, Vogel and his parents fled from the Nazis in 1938. Vogel ultimately settled in New York City, where he founded the avant-garde ciné-club Cinema 16 (1947–1963). Here, he presented films by leading European directors, including John Cassavetes, Nagisa Oshima, Roman Polanski, Alain Resnais, and Jacques Rivette alongside American avant-gardists of the time, such as Kenneth Anger, Stan Brakhage, James Broughton, Bruce Conner, Carmen D'Avino, Maya Deren, Sidney Peterson, among many others. In 1974, he published “Film as a Subversive Art,” which covered more than 600 films and became a bestseller.

The princess leans in to kiss the frog. What do you think happens next? 👸🏻💕 🐸

This book plate was created by Koloman Moser around 1905 in the Art Nouveau style. Moser was admired by his contemporaries as an artistic jack-of-all-trades. Today he is is regarded as one of the leading representatives of the Vienna Secession, alongside Gustav Klimt. To learn more about the artist, we recommend "Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna 1897-1907" edited by Christian Witt-Dörring. This stunning catalogue was published by Neue Galerie New York to coincide with an exhibition by the same name, and focuses on Moser’s accomplishments in the decorative arts.

On April 14, 1912, the world’s largest luxury liner, RMS Titanic, struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. The impressive ship sank two hours later; about 2,200 passengers were on board, and more than 1,500 people died. It remains one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history, and became a cultural phenomenon, commemorated by artists, composers, filmmakers, and writers.

German Expressionist painter Max Beckmann produced this enormous work in the immediate aftermath of this tragedy. His composition focused on the women and children stuffed into the lifeboats, some dressed in fine evening attire, while the brightly lit Titanic looms in the background. Ghostly bodies are seen in the freezing waters.
