What to expect?

Embark on a 3-hour tour of the Neues’s Museum’s world class collection of ancient Egyptian and Mediterranean art in the company of a historian. Examine the cutting edge curatorial strategies, the brilliant contemporary renovation of the institution and the legendary works of art in the collection, including the bust of Queen Nefertiti.

Located at a stone’s throw from the Old National Gallery, the brilliantly restored Neues Museum (New Museum) has opened its doors to the public again only in 2009. This 3 walk begins by examing the present museum itself, from its initial and revolutionary 19th century conception - created by architect Friedrich August Stüler (student of Karl Friedrich Schinkel) - to its elaborate decorative program by Wilhelm Kaulbach, to the current “masterplan” of its restorer, Chipperfield.

 

During our walk we continue evaluating the recent renovation and  the very contemporary curatorial strategies used for displaying ancient art. The museum’s collection is has an extraordinary depth displaying the development of Old World cultures from prehistory and early history. Of course the ancient Egyptian art crowns the assemblage and we consider its importance to the status of collection for the past two centuries, first the ultimate highlight of the museum, the legendary 3,300-year-old bust of Queen Nefertiti, whose original color is preserved without restoration since the Amarna period.

 

Further we explore famous examples of the delicacy of Egyptian portrait sculpture of the late period include the so-called Berlin “Green Head” named after its greenish stone.
