Contributing to the preservation of a collection covering 700 years of European art history, as well as to education in the arts
The Städel Museum, located in Frankfurt on the Main in Germany, is one of the most important international art collections in the world. The Museum displays more than 3,000 paintings, 600 sculptures, 1,600 photographs and more than 100,000 drawings and printed graphics. Together, these present a rich retrospective over 700 years of European art history − from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical Modern to the present day.
In addition to its extensive collection, the Städel Museum offers various art education platforms, such as ‘Guest Opinions’ and ‘Städel Dialogue’. These offer new opportunities for discourse and give the viewing public access to alternative, often unusual viewpoints on art and the works held in the Städel Museum.
Julius Baer is committed to the visual arts, and in 2006, became Städel Museum’s first corporate partner. Since 2013, the company also sponsors the Museum’s educational programs ‘Guest Opinions’ and ‘Städel Dialogue’.
