Neue Pinakothek

Van Gogh and other post-impressionists at the Neue Pinakothek of Munich

Impressionists and other 19th and 20th century painters at the "New Picture Gallery" of Munich

"Italia et Gemania" by Johann Friedrich Overbeck (1815/28) put a fine point on the Nazarene movement's Romantic ideal: to join German painting to the Italian Renaissance.
Across from the Alte Pinakothek, the Neue Pinakothek covers the late 18th to mid-20th centuries with everyone from Gainsborough, Goya, Delacroix, and Manet to Monet, Degas, Cézanne, van Gogh (some pictured above), and more modern masters such as Gustav Klimt, Max Beckmann, and Edvard Munch.

There's even an amusing section displaying works by the "Nazarenes," a group of early 19th century German artists trying their darndest to paint like 15th century Italian artists (see the picture below to the right).

Although the Neue Pinakothek contains quite a fine set of works, it really doesn't hold a candle to the collection of older paintings in its nearby sister gallery, the Alte Pinakothek.

If you're on a tight schedule, visit the Alte Pinakothek first, then see if you have an hour or so left for these galleries.
