Designed in the 1960s by Mies van der Rohe, the New National Gallery houses German and international paintings from the 20th century. It's strong on Expressionism: there are key works by Kirchner, Heckel and Schmidt-Rottluff, as well as pieces by lesser-known Expressionist painters such as Ludwig Meidner. Cubist pieces cover the likes of Picasso, Gris and Léger. The Neue Sachlichkeit is well represented by paintings from George Grosz and Otto Dix, while the Bauhaus contributes work from Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky. Another focus is American ColorField painting, with pieces by Barnett Newman, Morris Louis and Frank Badur. The permanent collection is often put into storage to allow for big shows and temporary exhibitions.
