Storm of Progress: German Art After 1800 from the Saint Louis Art Museum

Storm of Progress: German Art after 1800 from the Saint Louis Art Museum presents the Museum’s world-class collection of German art of the last 200 years. From Romanticism in the 1800s to the eclectic globalism that followed the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, this exhibition highlights how art, politics, and history are inextricably linked.

The exhibition brings together 120 works in chronological sections that explore key ideas and events from German art and history spanning national unification, industrialization, World Wars I and II, the Holocaust, and the Cold War and its aftermath. Art in a wide range of media shows the richness of the Museum’s collection, and many works will be on view for the first time.

This unique civic treasure of German art is a testament to the philanthropic support of our patrons. Because of their generosity, we are able to offer this exhibition free of charge during this unprecedented time.

Free tickets required.
