Great Impressionism. A New Museum.


Great Impressionism. A New Museum.

For those who love art, Berlin is home to a new museum that will offer a broad range of exhibitions from contemporary to classical works. The Museum Barberini, a reconstructed 18th-century palace, will be hosting an impressionist exhibit for its grand opening. The Art of Landscape exhibition will display 41 pieces by Monet, including Les Nymphéas and Meules. Also, look forward to additional 100 works from Renoir and Caillebotte, as well as sculptures by Rodin. This must-see exhibit shows works from around the world. Contributors include collections from Germany, the Heritage Museum, and never-before-shown pieces owned by private collectors. The museum’s 2200 m2 space offers a bright atmosphere that suits these impressionist works.
