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, Germany, has one of the most important international art collections in the world. It contains more than 3,100 paintings, 660 sculptures, 4,600 photographs, and 100,000 drawings and printed graphics. Together, these present a rich retrospective of 700 years of European art history − from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical Modern to the present day.
The scientific research of the inventory as well as the development of internationally recognised exhibitions out of their collection is the museum’s key aspect – alongside collecting and preserving art. Another main concern is art education for specific target groups, which deals with the collection’s content and generic art issues.
Julius Baer is committed to the visual arts, and in 2006 became Städel Museum’s first corporate partner.
