Staatsgalerie Stuttgart

The State Gallery is comprised today of three buildings. The oldest part of the gallery, known today as the Old State Gallery, was constructed during 1838 to 1843 by Gottlob Georg Barth as the Museum of Picture Art.

In 1984, the Old State Gallery was joined by the New State Gallery and constructed by the English master architect James Stirling. The Swiss architects, Wilfrid und Katharina Steib, annexed the Old State Gallery in 2002.
