The mission of the Neue Galerie is "to collect, preserve, research and exhibit fine and decorative art of Germany and Austria from the first half of the twentieth century." Their collection covers a range of media, including painting, sculpture, decorative arts, and photographs created in both countries from 1890 to 1940. On their website, visitors can view some of these works by clicking on areas that include "Fine Arts" and "Decorative Arts". The collection is quite remarkable, and first-time visitors may want to start by looking over works by Max Beckmann, Emil Nolde, and the Gustav Klimt study titled "Two Standing Woman Holding Sheet Music" from 1899. Each viewable item also contains a provenance record and other additional information. Visitors can also view each section as a slideshow, which is a nice way to pass a few minutes.
