Hamburg's Kunsthalle is one of the most interesting museums in Hamburg.

The museum was created in the 19th century at the initiative of local residents. The construction of the building was carried out on a site allocated by the government. Construction work was carried out in 1863-1869, architects Hermann von der Hude and Georg Theodor Schirrmacher were appointed as leaders. At the beginning of the 20th century, an outbuilding made of shell limestone with a dome was added to the building.

In 1937, some of the Kunsthalle's works of art were recognized as degenerate art and confiscated. In the late 1970s, restoration work was underway in the museum, and therefore the alarm was constantly disabled. As a result, 22 paintings were removed from the museum, the cost of which was estimated at 2 million German marks.

In the mid-1990s, the museum was housed in two buildings. A more modern building, designed by the architect Oswald Matthias Ungers, housed the Gallery of Modernity.

In the early years of its existence, the museum's collection was replenished with donated works of art that suited the tastes of its time. The collection of the museum acquired its consistency after the inauguration of Alfred Lichtwark, the first director of the Kunsthalle. The museum now has the sections `` Medieval Art '' and 'Art of the 19th Century'. The art of the 19th century is represented by the works of Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, Edouard Vuillard, Andres Zorn, Pierre Bonnard and others.

Likhtvark continued to buy up works of art, adding to the museum's collection. He also acquired a large collection of coins and medals, which today can be seen in the Mint Cabinet.

Subsequently, the Engraving Cabinet appeared in the museum, which today houses more than 100 thousand paintings, the Department of Modernism and the Department of Old wizards.
