Publisher's description: The Pinakothek Museums in Bavaria comprise the Alte Pinakothek, the Neue Pinakothek, and the Pinakothek der Moderne that, together, house an extensive collection of art from the old masters to the twenty-first century. Visitors come from all corners of the globe to view the Pinakothek's Bavarian State Painting Collections. But, in addition to the many paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, and installation art housed within the three museums, art from the Pinakothek, including some of the collection's most important hidden treasures, is also on display in nineteen galleries beyond the region's boundaries. The Pinakothek Museums in Bavaria is the first book to take readers through all nineteen galleries that showcase the Bavarian State Painting Collections more broadly, from the Schleissheim Palace in Oberschleissheim, with paintings by Nicolas Poussin, to St. Catherine's Church at Augsburg, which features works by Hans Holbein, to a gallery in Neuburg an der Donau that holds works by Peter Paul Rubens.
