Lindenau-Museum Altenburg

Botticelli, Dix and Germany’s most pleasant museum cafe

The collections begun by the Saxon-Thuringian statesman and scientist Bernhard von Lindenau (1779-1854) are housed in this museum, which was opened in the eastern Thuringian town in 1876: these include 180 early Italian paintings, a collection of ancient ceramics, a collection of plaster casts of (primarily ancient) sculptures and an art library. In addition to European and German painting of the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries and the extensive nineteenth-century collection, the museum also houses an important collection of twentieth-century German painting and works on paper, ranging from Expressionist tendencies to contemporary art. Finally, 'one of Germany's most pleasant museum cafes' (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) awaits its visitors.
