Apart from the New Pinakothek in Munich, the Johann Christian Reinhart Gallery in Hof, which opened on 15th January 2008, exhibits more works by the „German-Roman“-painter permanently than any other gallery. The new show rooms present the paintings from the collection of the city of Hof, for which there was no possibility of being shown permanently until now.
The initiative group „museum-aktiv“ was a driving force and laid the foundation together with the Hofer Hospitalstiftung to be able to present the approximately 60 works permanently in a historical setting. Special exhibitions and a change of what is presented are planned. The pieces on display now are mostly etchings in different formats which were mainly created during his time in Rome. With around 30 objects, a focus was set on Reinhart’s animal depictions and such landscape paintings that feature animals.
