Museum Villa Stuck
CITY GUIDE MUNICH: VILLA STUCK
Its somber erotic paintings caused a real stir at the end of the 19th century, and the villa looking down on the River Isar is still "shockingly grand", as Stuck’s pupil Paul Klee wrote. Artist Franz Stuck (1863-1928) designed the house complete with its furniture as a gesamtkunstwerk – and fitted it out with elements in the styles of Classical Antiquity, Byzantium, the Orient and the High Renaissance. The opulent rooms were restored in 2005 to resemble what they originally looked like and now open to visitors. That said, viewers can also travel back into the present, as this municipal museum hosts changing exhibitions of interesting contemporary art.
