New National Gallery
Designed in the 1960s by Mies van der Rohe, the Neue Nationalgalerie houses German and international paintings from the 20th century. Another focus is American Color Field painting, with pieces by Barnett Newman, Morris Louis and Frank Badur.
It’s strong on expressionism: there are key works by Kirchner, Heckel and Schmidt-Rottluff, as well as pieces by lesser-known expressionist painters such as Ludwig Meidner, whose apocalyptic post-World War I landscapes exert a garish, comic-book power. Cubist pieces cover the likes of Picasso, Gris and Léger.
The Neue Sachlichkeit is well represented by paintings from George Grosz and Otto Dix, while the Bauhaus contributes work from Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky. Be warned: the permanent collection is often put into storage to allow for big shows and temporary exhibitions.
