New York, Neue Galerie

Serge Sabarsky was a Viennese-born New Yorker who was a tireless advocate for German and Austrian Modernist art. He, together with Ronald S. Lauder, established the Neue Galerie as a permanent home in the United States for German and Austrian art and design of the early twentieth century, though Sabarsky himself never lived to see the opening of the museum.

The exhibition demonstrates the range and quality of the Sabarsky Collection of masterworks, which includes holdings by Austrian artists Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Oskar Kokoschka, and German artists Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, among many others.

A film series entitled “From Europe to America” accompanies the exhibition, tracing the émigré journey that mirrors the experience of Sebarsky himself; another extended element to the exhibition is “The Modern Moment,” a collaboration between the Guggenheim Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Neue Galerie in celebration of the legacy of European Modernism.
