About Neue Galerie:

Neue Galerie New York is a museum devoted to early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design. Conceived by art dealer and museum exhibition organizer Serge Sabarsky and businessman, philanthropist, and art collector Ronald S. Lauder. Sabarsky and Lauder shared a passionate commitment to Modern German and Austrian art. The museum reflects a dual commitment: an embrace of the city in which it is located and a focus on the culture upon which the exhibitions and collections are based. Two of the principal goals of the Neue Galerie New York are to bring a sense of perspective back to Germanic culture of this period, and to make the best of this work available to American and other audiences for both scholarly and aesthetic inquiry.
