One of the most important art museums in Europe and home to masterpieces spanning seven hundred years, the Staedel is largely ignored by American visitors in Germany. We study works from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance (Van Eyck, Botticelli) Baroque (Vermeer, Rembrandt), Modern (Monet, Kirchner, Picasso) as well as its spectacular presentation of Contemporary Art (Baselitz, Richter) in the new Garden Hall. We'll also look at the nearby Liebieg Sculpture Collection, the Icon Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. 

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years, and she currently teaches for the OLLI programs at Dominican University and UC Berkeley. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
