Leonhardi Museum - Gallery of Contemporary Art

Gallery of contemporary Saxon art and permanent presentation of paintings by Eduard Leonhardi

The building itself is fascinating: known since 1785 as the Hentschel-Mühle (Hentschel Mill), it was bought in 1879 by Eduard Leonhardi, a pupil of Ludwig Richter. It converted into a studio for young artists, and elaborately painted by Charles Palmié; pictures by Leonhardi were displayed here from 1885 to the early 1960s. From 1963 onwards the museum was used by different groups of artists for exhibitions, usually of young artists. In the 1970s and '80s, with diverse and politically daring exhibitions and a resonance that extended far beyond this region, a chapter of the history of progressive art was written here. Nowadays the building is a municipal gallery showing changing exhibitions of contemporary Saxon art and with a permanent display of pictures by Leonhardi.
