Stand in awe of modernist masterpieces in the Museum Frieder Burda, a stunning gallery in central Baden-Baden with rotating exhibits dedicated to art from the 20th century onward. Discover the wonder of abstract paintings and ponder the mysteries of expressionism in a museum that hosts work by Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock among others.
Frieder Burda is a fine art collector who started out in the world of publishing, but quickly developed a passion for art. In 2004, his collection was opened to the public in a stylish new building designed by New York architect Richard Meier. Browse paintings, sculptures and photographs from around 1,000 items owned by Burda.
Admire the building before entering, as it is a work of art itself. Large geometric windows overlook green, shaded gardens and allow natural light to pour in.
A light, airy aesthetic dominates the interior, where the artwork is hung on white walls in open spaces. The main emphasis of the collection is German, post-war art. Appreciate the disconcerting images created by George Baselitz and the abstract, colorful canvases of Gerhard Richter.
Browse a gallery of works by Pablo Picasso; he painted these pieces toward the end of his life. See some of his last portraits of human figures that feature the artist’s trademark unconventional use of shapes. Head into the surrounding gardens to study open-air sculptures by renowned names such as Joan Miró and Jacques Lipchitz.
The changing exhibitions in the museum rotate items from Burda’s collection to suit a different theme. Previous topics have included a response to the Holocaust and different interpretations of trees in paintings. Check the museum’s website in advance to see what exhibitions are showing.
The Museum Frieder Burda is open from Tuesday to Sunday. Combination tickets can be bought for joint entry to the museum and the neighboring Staatliche Kunsthalle. Buses run from the train station to outside the car park, on the other side of the Oos River from the museum. Bring your children along to take part in one of the museum’s workshops, which are perfect for younger art enthusiasts.
