Opened in 1843, Staatsgallerie Stuttgart is one of Germany’s most-visited museums known for housing a unique collection of artworks spanning seven centuries. This place showcases the traditional collection field, classical modernism, and contemporary sculptures. The oldest portion of the building was built in 1843 under King Wilhelm I.von Wurttemberg, making it one of the country’s oldest museums. The other part was reconstructed and designed by the British architect James Stirling who made it the finest example of post-modern architecture.

The old part of the building comprises sculpture and paintings dating back to the 1800s with a certain interest in the Renaissance and Baroque masters like Hans Memling. The top masterpieces include Jerg Ratgeb’s 16th- century Herrenberger Altar and Corpse of Christ by Annibale Carracci. The new part holds the 20th- century art by Franz Marc, Joan Miro, Picasso, Matisse, and Piet Mondrian among others. Its traditional graphic collection contains more than 400,000 graphic reproductions, drawings, collages, posters, and paintings.
