Museum Ludwig satisfactorily provides all the modern art –isms under one roof: realism, surrealism, nouveau réalisme, abstract expressionism. The Ludwig has the third largest Picasso collection in the world, after Paris and Barcelona, and an impressive collection of American artists. You’ll see some of the more famous Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Jasper Johns pieces in the Pop Art section.
Expressionism is well-represented, winch makes sense since the “Die Brücke” group began the movement in 1905 in Dresden. The Expressionists aimed to express their inner feelings, and shared an anti-academic, anti-middle class stance. Here, see some of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner’s, Max Ernst’s and Max Beckmann’s most striking inner feelings.
