The Lenbachhaus in Munich houses an art museum and is part of Munich's "Kunstareal" (the "art area"). The Lenbachhaus was built as a Florentine-style villa for the painter Franz von Lenbach between 1887 and 1891 by Gabriel von Seidl and was expanded 1927-1929 by Hans Grässel and again 1969-1972 by Heinrich Volbehr and Rudolf Thönessen. Some of the rooms have kept their original design. The city of Munich acquired the building in 1924 and today, the Lenbach Haus houses the city's gallery.
The gallery contains a variety of works including those by Munich, Der Blaue Reiter, New Objectivity, and contemporary artists.
The gallery shows masterpieces of municipal artists like Jan Polack, Christoph Schwarz, Georges Desmarees ("Countess Holstein" 1754), Wilhelm von Kobell, Georg von Dillis, Carl Rottmann, Carl Spitzweg, Eduard Schleich, Carl Theodor von Piloty, Franz von Stuck, Franz von Lenbach, Friedrich August von Kaulbach, Wilhelm Leibl, Wilhelm Trübner and Hans Thoma.
Also on display are works by members of the Munich Secession founded in 1892, such as Lovis Corinth, Max Slevogt and Fritz von Uhde.
