Old and New State GalleryBuilt between 1838 and 1843 under King Wilhelm I of Wuerttemberg, the Old State Gallery in Stuttgart features a prestigious range of paintings, drawings, sculptures, watercolours and prints from the 14th to the 19th centuries, with Jerg Ratgeb, Canaletto, Memling and Rembrandt taking centre stage. Connected to the Old State Gallery, on the same level, is the New State Gallery, dedicated to the art of the 20th century. Looking at important schools within various art movements like Fauvism, German Expressionism, Die Brucke and Cubism, the New State Gallery includes works by masters such as Picasso, Beckmann, Schlemmer, Beuys, Kiefer and Klee. A common criticism of this otherwise very popular gallery is that there isn't much seating available in the actual exhibition rooms, but if you need a break the museum has a restaurant and a cafe that serves lovely light meals and refreshments. There is also a gift shop.
