Impressionism: Hasso Plattner Collection

The Museum Barberini in Potsdam shows impressionist paintings from the extensive collection of Hasso Plattner, the museum’s founder. More than 100 masterpieces by Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Berthe Morisot, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Henri-Edmond Cross, Paul Signac, and other impressionist and postimpressionist artists are on permanent display. With 38 paintings by Claude Monet, there is no venue in Europe outside of Paris where visitors can see more works by this painter. Potsdam is thus one of the most important centers of impressionist landscape painting in the world.


“The paintings involve us as viewers in a very direct way. We can practically 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’s founder and patron

“No other collection can present Impressionist landscape painting as comprehensively and coherently in terms of its development and iconography. Through our works, visitors can learn about the fascinating history of the Impressionist movement as well as the further development of landscape through the Neo-Impressionists and Fauves.”
