Neue Galerie houses 20th-century German and Austrian art and design. In an old mansion on Fifth Avenue, two gallery floors display art from 1900s Vienna, and German art across various movements of the early 20th century. The Vienna collection explores the relationship between the fine arts and the decorative arts, with works by artists like Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffmann, and Adolf Loos. In the collection of German art, discover movements such as the Blaue Reiter and its circle, the Brucke, and the Bauhaus. Two close friends, Serge Sabarsky and Ronald S. Lauder, created the concept for the museum. Unfortunately, Sabarsky died before the museum was realized, but Lauder continued with the creation of the museum in memory of his friend.

I’ve never seen such a private gallery be so absolutely wonderful. The cool antique place and the people working there created an interesting and refined positive atmosphere. The gallery’s art is just magnificent. The current exhibition includes Klimt’s golden portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, reason enough to visit. The gallery has an exact replica of an Austrian cafe where the Neue gallery owners liked to take a cup of coffee. Coffee was great and this chocolate mousse dessert even better A NY must
Small and cozy gallery. Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bauer I is the masterpiece to be seen here, but it always has great exhibits. Absolutely recommended.
