From September 7, 2020, the Museum Barberini in Potsdam will show impressionist paintings from the extensive collection of Hasso Plattner, the museum’s founder. More than 100 masterpieces by Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Berthe Morisot, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Henri-Edmond Cross, Paul Signac, and other impressionist and post-impressionist artists will be on permanent display.
With 34 paintings by Claude Monet, there is no venue in Europe outside of Paris where visitors can see more works by this painter.
Potsdam is thus becoming one of the most important centers of impressionist landscape painting in the world. As well as special exhibitions in cooperation with international partners, the Museum Barberini is now offering a permanent collection that is unique in Germany.
