The Neue Pinakothek exhibits around 400 paintings and sculptures from the 19th century, representing neo-classicism to art nouveau. The once private collection of Ludwig I which initially inhabited about 100 works makes up the majority of the museum’s inventory and contains landscapes, genre painting and historical painting in particular. Among its outstanding works are German romanticist and French impressionist paintings, including pieces by Caspar David Friedrich, Edouard Manet, Paul Cézanne and Vincent van Gogh. Its current building was opened in 1981.
