About the
Exhibition

In the last 10 years the Neue Galerie Graz collection has been added to by numerous high-quality and in part high-profile works. Alongside acquisitions, the museum was able to record a series of generous donations. Together with works in the collection for a longer time, for example by Egon Schiele, Herbert Boeckl or Wilhelm Thöny, the ‘highlights’ series has greatly increased.

 

This exhibition offers an overview of the collection’s most outstanding works, while providing an overview of the museum’s more recent acquisitions.
