Museum Frieder Burda

The museum of collector Frieder Burda in Lichtentaler Allee is a sparkling jewel in Kurpark Baden-Baden. Designed by renowned New York celebrity architect Richard Meier, the museum architecture allows for plenty of natural light and is truly unique, much like the collection itself, which contains its fair share of masterpieces.

Richard Meier is the man behind many renowned museum buildings, including the Museum of Applied Art in Frankfurt, the Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona. He compares this building to a "large villa", set like a "jewel in the park", in the Lichtentaler Allee in Baden-Baden. The museum has a wonderfully transparent structure, making use of light and glass. The building was awarded the "New York Chapter Design Award" for its "excellent design and first-rate implementation". This masterful "daylight museum" stands right next to the Staatliche Kunsthalle, a gallery built over 100 years earlier. A state-run cultural institution is linked to a private cultural initiative here, which is a first in Germany. The wide range of exhibitions in the new museum building is just as attractive as the architecture, with a variety of masterpieces by well-known classical modernist painters and pieces from the private collection of Frieder Burdas, including some great moments from the history of art. With its roots in Expressionism, the collection now contains around 1,000 paintings, sculptures and works on paper, focussing on classical modernism. It features eight works by Picasso, giving an impressive view of his later work. What most fascinates the collector, Frieder Burda, about art is colour and the emotions that can be expressed through painting. This is a highly personal collection, which brings together exemplary works from the art of the 20th and 21st Centuries.
