With a magnificent donation from Gabriele Münter, on the occasion of ther eightieth birthday 1957, the Städtische Galerie came into possession of an outstanding collection of works by Wassily Kandinsky and by Münter herself, as well as many works by their other artist friends in the Blue Rider Circle, that turned the Lenbachhaus overnight into a museum of world significance. The main works of these artistic personalities join the collection of world-renowned painting by Franz Marc, August Macke, Paul Klee, and Alexey Jawlensky, namely the "Blue Horse" or "Turkish Café".
Since the 1970s the museum has been presenting the important trends and artists of the international contemporary art world and collecting contemporary art. Starting with the acquisition in 1980 of Joseph Beuys's "Zeige deine Wunde" (Show Your Wound) (1974–1975), the museum shifted its focus towards collecting representative works and groups of works.
The Lenbachhaus was remodeled and extended by the international architectural practice Foster + Partners and was reopened in May 2013.

The former villa of Munich's "painting prince" Franz von Lenbach was expanded through the designs of Gabriel Seidl between 1887 and 1891. Lenbach commissioned the architect to employ Tuscany style for this representative studio and residence to be built on the royal street connecting the Residence and the Nymphenburg Castle. This proximity to the Pinakotheks and the Glyptothek helped shape the present Kunstareal.
When the Lenbachhaus became a city museum in 1926 the architect Hans Grässel designed the north wing as addition fitting to the existing structure outside, and employing modern objective architecture within. In 1972 the cultural programs of the Olympic Games in Munich saw fit to realize a second extension which is now being replaced within the framework of the present renovation. The architectural office of Forster + Partners is executing a delicate, historically conscious restructuring and addition to the existing landmark. The exhibit halls of the museum, the services, and general facilities will open in 2013 on the highest level of international standards. At the same time, the general ambience and charm of the former artist villa remain.
The artistic exhibit structure on the mezzanine level of the subway station Königsplatz has expanded the area of the Lenbachhaus since 1994 and remains open during the renovation.

The Blue Rider returns
03.02.2016 - 31.12.2017

"The whole body of work we call art knows neither borders nor nations but only humanity." In recent years, large selections of works by the artists of the "Blue Rider" have left the Lenbachhaus for two exhibitions — "August Macke and Franz Marc" in 2015 and "Klee & Kandinsky" in 2015/16 — produced in collaboration with other museums, as well as shows at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, the MoMA, New York, the Städel, Frankfurt, the Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin, the Palazzo Ducale, Venice, and elsewhere. The new installation of the Blue Rider department in the Lenbachhaus’s galleries brings a fresh perspective on beloved highlights of the museum’s collection. Visitors can look forward to familiar treasures from the world’s largest ensemble of paintings by the members of the "Blue Rider" circle. The new hanging emphasizes the "aura" of some of these masterworks, affording them the space they need to shine—true to Kandinsky’s dictum that the focus of any contemplation of art.

Picture Perfect – Views from the 19th Century
20.02.2017 - 31.12.2018

The nineteenth century is the age of pictures. Visual art was seen by larger audiences than ever before. The motifs that were invented then still define our ideas of romantic feeling, of sadness and beauty. Artists—women and men—powerfully shaped the culture of their time; the spectrum of themes deemed worthy of depiction expanded substantially, and "picture perfect" became the highest form of praise. The art of the period lets us glimpse inside the studios and showcases tourist attractions, speaks of artists’ attachment to their native lands and their yearning for nature and a less constricted way of life, or captures the self-representation of the bourgeoisie and the grand "theater" of modern life. The reinterpretation and rearrangement of the museum’s rich holdings of nineteenth-century art seeks to offer fresh perspectives on a visual culture that continues to inform how we see the world.

Gabriele Münter
31.10.2017 - 08.04.2018

Gabriele Münter was a photographer before she was a painter. She took her first pictures around 1900, during a stay in the United States. She started painting soon after and never stopped—she worked on her art almost every day for the rest of her life. And Gabriele Münter went to the movies! She was an open-minded artist who embraced experimentation; many of her accomplishments have lingered in obscurity because her oeuvre has generally been studied through the narrow lens of her life and her relationship with Kandinsky. That is why the focus of attention has been almost entirely on her pictures from the "Blue Rider" years. Art lovers usually associate Münter’s name with German Expressionism, with Murnau and her home in the picturesque small town, now a museum dedicated to her and Kandinsky’s work. Yet Münter’s art was far more multifaceted, imaginative, and stylistically diverse than most people are aware.

Joseph Beuys. Impeccable Pictures 1945-1984
14.11.2017 - 18.03.2018

It was at documenta III in the summer of 1964 that Lothar Schirmer first saw drawings by Joseph Beuys. The following spring—he was just twenty years old and had initiated a correspondence with the artist—he visited Beuys, arguably the preeminent German artist of the twentieth century, in his studio in Düsseldorf. The set of drawings he purchased on that occasion became the foundation for a steadily growing collection of hand drawings and prints by Beuys; with the artist’s active support, he also added objects, sculptures, and environments.

Der Blaue Reiter kehrt zurück. Eine Veranstaltung der MVHS


Die Wiedereinrichtung des "Blauen Reiter" setzt neue Akzente in der Schausammlung. Die Besucherinnen und Besucher treffen auf den Reichtum der weltweit größten Sammlung an Bildern des "Blauen Reiter", die an verschiedenen Stellen durch eine stärker auratische Hängung herausragenden Gemälden mehr Raum gibt. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf dem Postulat der Vielfalt der künstlerischen Äußerungen, derzufolge Kandinsky und Marc Volkskunst, Kinderkunst, ägyptische Schattenbilder, afrikanische Schnitzereien oder bayerische Hinterglasbilder gleichberechtigt neben die Kunstwerke alter europäischer Meister oder der aktuellen Avantgarde stellten.

In den Blick genommen


In der Ausstellung "Gabriele Münter. Malen ohne Umschweife" lässt sich anhand des Mediums der Fotografie die eigene Wahrnehmung schulen und ganz direkt, ohne Umschweife, den künstlerischen Blick ergründen. Es werden Visionen und Vorstellungen als Tableau Vivant, als ein "lebendes Bild", inszeniert. Dabei setzen sich die persönlichen Eindrücke mit dem malerischen Werk Münters in Beziehung.

Treffpunkt des Familienworkshops ist das Atrium (Foyer) im Lenbachhaus. Im Studio des Lenbachhauses findet dann zunächst ein Warm-Up statt, um den eigenen Blick zu aktivieren und sich auf die Inszenierung einzustimmen. Danach folgt der Ausstellungsrundgang mit Kunstgesprächen vor den Originalen.
