About the Acquisition

Like the 17th century Dutch painters who were so popular among Frankfurt collectors, the 18th century Frankfurt painters were specialists in certain fields. While Christian Georg Schütz captured extensive landscapes from the surrounding area, Justus Juncker had a penchant for still lifes and Johann Conrad Seekatz was focused on the children's genre. All these painters were already represented in important private collections in Frankfurt during their lifetime, be it in that of Johann Caspar Goethe, the father of the poet Johann Wolfgang, or in that of the banker and merchant Johann Friedrich Städel (1728−1816). In his charter to the foundation from 1815, Städel laid the foundation for the museum that still exists today and bequeathed not only his house on the Roßmarkt and his fortune, but also his collection of paintings.
