Overview
More
With its rich collection of masterworks dating from the fourteenth century to the present, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart is among Germany’s most popular museums. Both its impressive museum complex and its holdings mirror the link between tradition and modernity. The Staatsgalerie Stuttgart presents its superb collection on some 9,000 square metres of exhibition space offered by the old building of 1843, the famous post-modern Stirling Building, and the Steib Halls constructed in 2002. Among the prominent holdings are the approximately 400,000 works belonging to the Department of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, Early Swabian panel painting and outstanding examples of nineteenth-century Swabian Neoclassicism. The chief emphasis of the museum collection is undoubtedly the Classical Modern period with art spanning the years from 1900 to 1980. Special highlights here are Oskar Schlemmer’s Figurines for the Triadic Ballet of the early 1920s, Henri Matisse’s famous Backs (1909-‒30), numerous works by Picasso including the sculptural group The Bathers (1956), and the Joseph Beuys room installed by the artist himself.

This art gallery is certainly worth a visit. We enjoyed our time here and particularly enjoyed the "uncluttered" feel of the gallery. It is very spread out between the new and old gallery which we found difficult to navigate, but managed to retrace our steps...More

It's free admission at the moment. I enjoyed my visit very much. People seem obsessed with the building itself but the collection of art is outstanding. Paintings are well displayed and categorized and it's very much a case of quality over quantity. Highly recommended.

This has to be one of the most confusing museums for new guests! I understood that the original building had an addition many years ago to combine the modern new building with old, but signage doesn’t provide easy directions on how to get around. You...More

The permanent exhibition will be enough for most visitors. The changing exhibitions make everything even more interesting. There are even exhibited some works of very famous artists.

A wonderful gallery with plenty to see. The floors are divided into time periods of artists' work. As one would expect, there was a strong focus on German artists but they were placed in the broader European context too. Thoroughly enjoyed the German expressionism and...More
