Museum der Bildenden Künste information
An edgy glass cube is the home of Leipzig's fine arts museum and its well-respected collection of paintings from the 15th century to today, including works by Caspar David Friedrich, Lucas Cranach the Younger and Claude Monet. Highlights include rooms dedicated to native sons Max Beckmann, Max Klinger – whose striking Beethoven monument is a veritable symphony of marble and bronze – and Neo Rauch, a chief representative of the New Leipzig School.
