In the summer of 2021, the modernist collection at the Lindenau Museum Altenburg was able to record one of the most significant additions of recent years: With the Felix and Herlinde Peltzer Collection, around 300 paintings and drawings from the period of Classical Modernism entered the art museum's holdings on permanent loan. Among the exhibits are works by some of the most renowned artists from the early 20th century - including the masters of the Expressionist artists' association "Die Brücke": Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Otto Mueller, Karl Schmitt-Rottluff and Max Pechstein. Today, they are all considered classics of modern painting.
Together with works by Marianne von Werefkin, Maria Caspar-Filser, Adolf Hoelzel, Carl Hofer, Rudolf Levy and Heinrich Nauen, some of whom have only come increasingly to the public's attention in recent years, they are presented in an extensive exhibition of works in the Prinzenpalais of the Residenzschloss. They are complemented by works by Jean Lurcat and Jules Pascin, who belong to French modernism.
