Dresden’s Kupferstich-Kabinett is one of Europe’s oldest museums of drawings, prints and photographs, and one of the most important. Its collection comprises around 515,000 works, representing eight centuries and more than 20,000 artists. There is a wide spectrum of subjects, including both secular and Biblical motifs, portraits, landscapes and still lifes, but also historical depictions of festivities and illustrations of subjects from natural history. Changing special exhibitions, in the exhibition rooms of the royal palace, present both works from the Cabinet’s own collection and others loaned by its international partner museums. In the study room, which is open to members of the public, visitors can, on request, have original works brought to them to examine at close quarters.
