National Gallery Stuttgart

The National Gallery Stuttgart opened in 1843 as the Museum of Fine Arts. In 1984, the New National Gallery, designed by the architect James Stirling, opened. In 2002 the museum expanded and offers now in three buildings exhibition space.

The classical Old National Gallery was built and designed by the architect Georg Gottlob Barth from 1838 to 1842. It housed originally next to the art collections the Royal Art Academy. From 1881 - 1887 the original three-winged building was extended in the back by two wings. Plans were drawn by the architect Albert von Bok. In 1944 the building was completely destroyed by bombing. After that, the rebuilt started in 1946, and it was re-opened in 1958. The New National Gallery, designed by James Stirling, opened in 1984.

The National Gallery now includes Old German, Italian, Dutch and Baroque paintings as well as major works of the painters from the 20th Century such as Picasso, Schlemmer, Beuys and many more.
