The Neue Galerie is a world renowned and well regarded museum based in Manhattan, New York.
In May of 2023, I brought and treated my wife for a visit to the Neue Galerie and we very much enjoyed our time there.
The building that contains the museum is referred to as the William Starr Miller House. Designed by the prominent 20th Century architectural firm, Carrere and Hastings, the house once served as the residence for William Starr Miller, a successful industrialist and real estate operator, and subsequently, owned by Grace Vanderbilt, an American socialite, and the spouse of Cornelius Vanderbilt III, an American inventor, and member of the Vanderbilt Family.
Today, the Miller House is owned and occupied by the Neue Galerie museum. The museum was established by Ronald S. Lauder, a highly successful entrepreneur and philanthropist as a tribute to his friend, Serge Sarbasky an eminent 20th Century art collector and dealer.
Neue Galerie primarily features early 20th Century German & Austrian art. When visiting the museum, both my wife and I enjoyed viewing the paintings by Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka.
Our favorite painting was Klimt’s work, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, also called The Lady in Gold. We not only found this to be a stunning painting, but we also admired its incorporation of Byzantine, Egyptian & Greek artistic elements.
If you love early 20th Century German & Austrian art, then you should definitely visit and explore the Neue Galerie
