Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister
Old Masters Picture Gallery
This museum is world-famous. Core areas within the collection include Italian Renaissance painting, with works by Raphael, Giorgione and Titian, and Mannerist and Baroque painting. Raphael's "Sistine Madonna" has become a prominent symbol of Dresden. Equally significant are the collections of seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painting, with works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Rubens and Van Dyck. In addition the gallery shows masterpieces of Early German and Early Netherlandish painting by artists including Van Eyck, Dürer, Cranach and Holbein, and the museum also possesses outstanding works by seventeenth-century Spanish and French painters. Every year art lovers in their hundreds of thousands are drawn here not only by the quality of the museum’s picture collection but also by the magnificent setting of Semper’s building.
