Impressionism: Hasso Plattner Collection

The permanent exhibition at the Museum Barberini in Potsdam presents museum founder Hasso Plattner’s extensive collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. With 114 masterpieces by 23 artists including Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Berthe Morisot, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Henri-Edmond Cross, and Paul Signac, the collection shows French landscape painting in a uniquely coherent and comprehensive way. With 40 paintings by Claude Monet, it is the largest collection of Monet’s work in Europe outside of Paris, making Potsdam one of the most important centers of Impressionist landscape painting worldwide.


“As viewers, we are immediately drawn into the paintings. We feel the wind on our skin and the temperature of the water when we look at Monet’s sailboats on the Seine. No other art can do that. The Impressionists are geniuses of communication.”

Hasso Plattner, museum founder and patron

“No other collection can show French Impressionist landscape painting so comprehensively and coherently, in terms of both development and iconography. Through our works, visitors can learn not only about the history of this fascinating art movement, but also about the subsequent development of landscape painting by the Neo-Impressionists and Fauvists.”
