The Pinakothek Museums in Bavaria : Treasures and Locations of the Bavarian State Painting Collections, Paperback / softback Book

The Pinakothek Museums in Bavaria : Treasures and Locations of the Bavarian State Painting Collections Paperback / softback

Edited by Bernhard Maaz

Paperback / softback

Description

The Bavarian State Painting Collections are world famous.

Every year visitors from every corner of the globe flock to the Pinakotheken in Munich.

But few of them realise that the high-quality stocks of this unique collection extend far beyond the city boundaries.

This attractive volume now leads visitors for the first time through all 19 galleries of the State Painting Collections in Bavaria.

Lucas Cranach resides in the electoral palace of Aschaffenburg, Hans Holbein in St Catherine's Church in Augsburg and Peter Paul Rubens in Neuburg an der Donau.

But even the locations of the galleries - ancient castles and magnificent palaces - make attractive destinations for excursions.

From medieval altarpieces to media installations, from Albrecht Durer to Andy Warhol, from Ansbach to Wurzburg: lavishly illustrated and in the words of the people who look after them, this volume tells of famous masterpieces, reveals hidden treasures and invites you to embark upon a journey through the past history and present day of the Pinakotheken in Bavaria.
