Synopsis: One of the great museums of the 19th century, the Neues Museum in Berlin, built between 1843 to 1855 to a design by Friedrich August Stüler, was celebrated both for its important collections and its innovative integration of exhibition concept and magnificent interior designs. Badly damaged during the Second World War, the building has been sympathetically restored by the Britisch architect David Chipperfield and his team, whose work skilfully combines a rigorous respect for the original architecture on the one hand, with a commitment to modern design and contemporary exhibition needs on the other.
This lavish publication presents the reopened Neues Museum in all its glory. Numerous full-page photographs magnificently showcase both the museum's architecture and its collection. The famous Mythological Room, Roman Room and the Room of the Niobids, as well as the extensive wall paintings of Wilhelm von Kaulbach and the historic floors, are described in detailed individual chapters. Other chapters re-examine the museum's eventful history and detail the extensive programme of restoration. Historical and current illustrations and floorplans complete this comprehensive and beautifully illustrated work on one of the finest museums in the world.
