At the end of the 19th century the master painter Franz von Stuck (1863-1928) stood in the very centre of Munich’s high society. He himself designed the studio and living accomodation in his neo-Classicist mansion located in Prinzregentenstrasse in Bogenhausen, which was built in 1897/98. They were groundbreaking and an hommage to art nouveau. To this day the Stuck villa conveys the zeitgeist of the fin du siécle. Its exhibits include the studio and living accommodation with Stuck’s paintings. The inner courtyard and garden have been laid out as shown by historic plans.
