  • CONSERVATIVES AND REFORMERS
    Art around 1900

    The collection of the Berlinische Galerie begins with works from the second half of the 19th century. Radical upheavals characterised this era. The Prussian trading city and royal residence Berlin became the capital of the Reich, founded in 1871. Advancing modernisation led to the emergence here of the Reich's biggest industrial conglomeration. A great many people migrated from the countryside into the city, sharpening social contrasts. Women vehemently demanded their rights, forcing their way into domains previously restricted to men.

    The artists of the time reacted to these new conditions in completely different ways. Art promoted by the imperial court, the aristocracy and the bourgeoisie adhered to its function as pure reproduction. Its primary purpose was the glorification of commissioning clients. But new trends against this conservative current developed. Artists became increasingly interested in rural life in the areas surrounding Berlin, examined the dismal state of social affairs in Berlin, or posed questions about the very purpose of art.
