The Schackgalerie occupies a building designed in 1907 by the architect Max Littman for the Prussian legation. The Gallery houses a notable collection illustrating the development of German painting in the 19th C. Its founder, Count Adolf Freidrich von Schack (1815-94), was a generous patron of the arts, purchasing and commissioning works by many 19th C. German painters including Schwind, Spitzweg, Lenbach and Böcklin.
