The Neue Pinakothek houses one of the most extensive collections of British paintings on the Continent. With regard to this privilege the Munich museum will present the first solo exhibition of animal paintings by Stubbs outside of England. Stubbs's work, which enjoyed great popularity during his lifetime (1724-1806), was almost forgotten after his death. Only in the 1980s the exceptional quality of Stubb’s animal studies were rediscovered through a retrospective in the Tate Gallery London. Apart from its own stock of Stubbs paintings, the Neue Pinakothek will also show pieces on loan from the Royal Collection, the Tate Britain and from several British castles.
