Frankfurt museum with over 200 years of history
On March 15, 1815 banker Johann Friedrich Städel created a foundation for his private art collection. This would lay the groundwork for Frankfurt’s Städel museum, comprised of paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries.
An exhibition in Frankfurt's Städel museum explores the work of the Flemish painter, as well the precursors and contemporaries who influenced him. Rubens dominated the 17th-century art world like perhaps no other artist.
Bernd and Hilla Becher used to be Germany's most recognized artists. Their images of industrial complexes shook up the art world. Their students knew they had big shoes to fill; their works are now on show in Frankfurt.
Bernd and Hilla Becher were pioneers in the art of photography and even started their own school. Their students have become some of the most recognized photographers in the world. A Frankfurt exhibition explains why.
