Masterpieces from the Städel Museum
In celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Städel Museum, one of Europe’s oldest and most eminent art institutions, this book highlights 250 of the finest examples from the museum’s collection including paintings, sculptures, and graphic art.
The holdings of the Städel Museum, now entering its third century, include magnificent works dating from the early 14th century to the present. This exquisitely produced volume focuses on the collection’s highlights, offering readers an in-depth insight into the Städel’s treasures as well as a survey of the development of European art. Included here are Renaissance masterpieces by Botticelli and Bellini; paintings by Vermeer, Monet, and Richter; works by Modernists and post-Modernists; sculpture by Calder; photography by Tillmans, and much more. This volume not only presents an impressive array of the finest art from more than seven centuries, it also reflects the museum’s commitment to recognizing and preserving art of all kinds for centuries to come.
