Until 31 December 2010. Visitors to this exhibition can appreciate of the extent of the wealth of artworks in the collection of the National Gallery. Severe damage was inflicted on the museum in the years preceding, and during, world war two.
Most documented is the nazi's Degenerate Art campaign of 1937 in which countless paintings were destroyed or disappeared; expressionist masterpieces such as Franz Marc's Tower of the Blue Horses have never been recovered. Reprodcutions of these missing paintings form part of the exhibition, in the poignant 'shadow gallery'.
Another aspect of this comprehensive display of works is the merging of two very different collections: the avant-garde style of West Germany with the traditional tastes of East Germany.
