Established as a civic foundation in 1815 by the banker and businessman Johann Friedrich Städel, the Städel Museum ranks as Germany’s oldest museum foundation. Under a single roof, its collection offers a virtually complete survey of 700 years of European art from the early 14th century to the present, with focuses on the Renaissance, the Baroque, early Modern art and much more. The holdings encompass altogether 3,100 paintings, 660 sculptures, more than 5,000 photographs and more than 100,000 drawings and prints. Works by such artists as Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Dürer, Sandro Botticelli, Rembrandt van Rijn, Jan Vermeer, Maria Sibylla Merian, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Max Beckmann, Lotte Laserstein, Francis Bacon, Gerhard Richter, Wolfgang Tillmans and Corinne Wasmuht form the highlights.

In addition to collection and preservation, we devote our efforts to the scholarly investigation of our holdings and the development of internationally acclaimed exhibitions from within the context of the collection. A further key concern is target-group-specific museum education revolving around themes of relevance for the collection and related to art in general. The large number of education and communication measures we offer in contemporary formats ensures the fulfilment of the Städel foundation’s purpose within and outside the museum.
