Museum Brandhorst

Local name: Museum Brandhorst

Located inside: Pinakothek der Moderne

The Brandhorst Museum was founded in 2009 and is dedicated to modern and contemporary art. His collection includes over 1,000 works of pioneer artists of the 20th and 21st centuries such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Joseph Beuys. The museum's collection includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs as well as presentations and multimedia installations. Particularly noteworthy is the collection of over 100 illustrated books by Pablo Picasso and the unique collection of works by the American abstract Cy Twombly on a global scale.

The museum was founded on the initiative of Udo Fritz-Hermann, who after the death of his wife, Anette Brandhorst, decided to hand over their joint collection of works of art to the Bavarian authorities.

The building was designed by the Sauerbruch Hutton architectural studio. One of the museum's rooms, shaped like an irregular octagon, was created specifically for the Lepanto cycle. Twombly's monumental series consists of 12 parts and is dedicated to the naval battle of 1571.
