Due to the generous donation of five major works by the Schindler family and the patronizing of the Society of Friends of the New Masters Picture Gallery Dresden, the number of art works in the museum growths from three to a total of ten.

Ever since his study, Osmar Schindler was closely connected to the Dresden Art academy, in which he taught from 1900 to 1924. Being a student of Ferdinand Pauwels and Leon Pohle, he was regarded as a promising talent together with Sascha Schneider, Hans Unger and Richard Müller. Next to several landscapes, which he created on journeys to Belgium, France and Italy as well as in his Saxon homeland, many portraits were produced in his studio. Based on his solid training at the academy and his style of painting that was developed from drawing, Schindler also created historical and figurative scenes with a balanced compositional technique. He was aware of the artistic styles of his time and opened himself to the ornamental design of Art Nouveau, but also to the abstract brushstrokes of the Impressionists.
