The Museum der bildenden Künste (Museum of Fine Arts) in Leipzig is one of the most important civic art collections in Germany. Its new building, designed by the Berlin architects Hufnagel, Pütz and Rafaelian, and opened in 2004, is the first major new museum building in the Eastern Germany since 1945. Its collections of paintings and sculpture are displayed over four floors, and there is a dedicated space for temporary exhibitions. The collections encompass paintings dating from the late mediaeval period up to the present day, sculptures and an important collection of graphic works. Early German painting, 17th century Dutch painting, Italian drawings of the Baroque period and 19th century German art are particularly well represented, while many diverse facets of the art of the German Democratic Republic are also documented. The Museum der bildenden Künste is also a vibrant venue for contemporary art. (Text from:
