The Villa Stuck - one of the most important artist's residences in Europe - is a nationally and internationally renowned location for art from the 19th to the 21st centuries. An important collection of works from Franz von Stuck (1863-1928), international exhibitions of art from around 1900, as well as exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, make Villa Stuck a unique place in which to experience art.
Franz von Stuck's villa (built in 1897/1898) combines luxurious interiors with an impressive artist's studio and private living quarters. The villa was completed and perfected in 1915 with the addition of a new, spacious artistsant workshop and studio. At the rear of the villa is a garden, combining Pompeiian influences with artworks from the 19th century.
The Museum Villa Stuck has been a municipal museum since 1992. It is administered as a foundation by the City of Munich, with an endowment by the villa™s and foundation™s benefactors, Hans-Joachim und Amélie Ziersch.
