With the Museum Barberini a new cultural attraction came to Potsdam. Exhibitions range from the Old Masters to contemporary art with a focus on impressionism. Based on works from the collection of Hasso Plattner, the museum’s founder and patron, the Museum Barberini presents three temporary exhibitions each year with major loans from international private collections and museums. The Museum Barberini in the reconstructed palace is located in the historic center of Potsdam on the square Alte Markt. The building’s courtyard opens onto Alte Fahrt with access to the Havelterrassen and a view of the Freundschaftsinsel on the opposite bank.

For his landscape paintings, Claude Monet revisited the same places over and over again and completed extensive series of works from a single location. During his travels he created numerous paintings at the coast of Normandy, in Zaandam in the Netherlands or in London and Venice. He was not interested in picturesque landmarks but in the changing light and weather conditions and the different effects they had on these particular places. He took pleasure in motifs such as parks, gardens, and waterlilies that surrounded him where he lived in Paris, Argenteuil, Vétheuil, and Giverny, using them to further his exploration of light and color. Organized in cooperation with the Denver Art Museum.
