The Museum of fine arts, Leipzig

Maximilian Speck von Sternburg was one of the great admirers of art in the 19th century. Marion Bühler-Brockhaus and her husband gathered a significant collection of French 19th century paintings. Harald Falckenberg of Hamburg is one of the best-known collectors of the present age. Together, they – and many others – align with a tradition that dates more than 150 years back: in 1848, the Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig was founded by merchants, publishers, traders and bankers of the city. From that point in time onwards, numerous collectors have followed in their footsteps, contributing to the museum through bestowments and foundations. Their passion for art and their individual focal points are still perceivable in tours around the collection.
