Städel Museum Frankfurt

The Städel is one of the leading and best known art museums in Germany. It is a must for any visitor to Frankfurt. 700 years of European history are represented in a collection of 2,700 paintings, 600 sculptures and 100,000 prints and drawings by artists ranging from Dürer, Holbein and Cranach to Rembrandt, Vermeer, Monet, Van Gogh and Cézanne to Matisse and Picasso, Bacon and Baselitz, Serra and Palermo.

Permanent Collection

The Städel collection contains masterpieces that bridge seven centuries of European art: featuring magnificent paintings representative of the major schools and epochs of painting from the early 14th century to the present.

The Städel owns some 600 sculptures of which only a small part is on display.

The interplay between 19th- and 20th-century paintings and sculptures particularly engages viewers.

The wide span of the collection provides a stimulating art experience. Beside well known works, there is always something new to be discovered.

You now have the option to view a selection of our exhibits including short descriptions.

26 April to 19 August 2007
Wilhelm Lehmbruck: The Busts. A Return to the Städel Museum

The occasion of this exhibition is a generous loan from the Kirchner Museum in Davos: the bust Head of the Kneeling Woman of 1914 temporarily returns to the Städel Museum, having been removed from the museum in 1937, when Lehmbruck was still alive, as part of the National Socialist confiscation campaign. The exhibition built around this work, together with other works from the Städel and several other loans, directs the viewers attention to an aspect of Lehmbruck’s oeuvre that has thus far received little attention: the subtle and highly differentiated work with partial casts in various materials. The comparison of the full figures and partially casts in the work of the great German sculptor of the early twentieth century makes us aware of the influence that artistic decisions—a certain detail, a special material—can have on the perception of art.
