BERLIN, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- More than 200 modern masterpieces from New York's Museum of Modern Art went on display Friday at Berlin's New National Gallery as part of a cultural exchange.

Later this year German Expressionist works will go on display at another New York museum in the second part of the exchange.

New York's MoMA is currently under renovation, freeing up a large part of its collection of late 19th and 20th century works for the "MoMA in Berlin" show. It includes works by Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Hopper, Jackson Pollock, and Roy Lichtenstein. The exhibit will run through Sept. 19.

In return, the Neue Galerie museum of German and Austrian Art in New York will begin exhibiting works from the New National Gallery on March 12, including paintings by Otto Dix, George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and Hermann Pechstein. This show, titled "Arcadia and Metropolis," will run through June 7.
