The Collection Frieder Burda has its roots in Expressionism and today comprises round 1000 paintings, sculptures and drawings. The focus is on classical modern and contemporary art. The Frieder Burda Collection includes a total of eight impressive works from Picasso's later period. The fascination of colour and the emotional expressive qualities of painting are at the centre of the collector's interest in art. This perspective has given rise to a Collection with a personal style, bringing together pioneering positions of painting in the 20th and 21st century.

American artists of the New York school of Abstract Expressionism created an art tradition in their own right. In addition to paintings from Gottlieb, de Kooning, Pollock and Rothko, the collection contains a significant work by Clyfford Still – a true rarity in the European museum scene. Furthermore, the collection encompasses in particular a selection of German post-war art.

Georg Baselitz is brilliantly represented in the collection. Other highlights are two major works by Baselitz' former Berlin companion Eugen Schönebeck as well as Anselm Kiefer's almost six meter long painting „Böhmen liegt am Meer“.

The most important and comprehensive collections of artworks in the entire Frieder Burda collection are those by Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke and Arnulf Rainer. Numerous examples of all the periods of their creative life provide a broad overview of these artists, who so tremendously influenced contemporary art. Frieder Burda has lately intensified his dedication to support the younger generation of artists, in particular Neo Rauch, Uwe Kowski, Tim Eitel and Matthias Weischer.
