Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister - Review

The Old Masters Picture Gallery is one of the best collections of art in Germany, with around 750 paintings which span four centuries, from the 15th till the 18th.  There’s an array of artwork by world famous painters including Vermeer, Raphael and Rembrandt. This gallery houses paintings from the Italian Renaissance, French and Spanish artwork. The collection here will leave you amazed, as it once did a young Goethe.

The Gallery came into existence in 1855 when a new gallery wing was added to the Zwinger by Augustus the Strong. He desired to display his vast collection of art that he had acquired from all over Europe. After the WWII, the building the gallery resided in was terribly damaged due to aerial bombardment and the paintings were taken to Moscow and Kiev. The reconstruction of the building and subsequently the gallery lead to its re-opening in 1960. Till date, as many as 450 paintings from the original collection are missing.

Today, the gallery displays only 40% of the original collection, some are on display in another museum, some were stolen or lost and around 206 were destroyed. But the collection still sheens of brilliance with works such as Raphael’s ‘Sistine Madonna’, Giorgione’s ‘Sleeping Venus’, Vermeer’s ‘Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window’ and Cranach’s "St. Catherine Altar. Other artists featured here are Van Eyck, Rubens, Canaletto, Durer and numerous others. It’s a trove of painted treasure. The walls of the gallery depict the country of origin of the artists. Deep red for Italian artists, green walls showcase Dutch and Flemish paintings and grey for Spanish and French art.

The museum’s original structure was damaged in World War II and the gallery that stands today is more modernized, with renovation work that has improved its infrastructure. In 2013, a new style of displaying the paintings was devised, in order to ensure every visitor was able to view all the most famous paintings in the gallery. One can compare this gallery to the best Old Masters collections in the world but unlike the Orsay or the Louvre, the Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister covers just a few different periods and stops at the 1900s. Paintings after that period are shown in the Albertinum.  Features like this are what make this gallery one of the best in Europe. If in Dresden, visit the Zwinger and this gallery. You will be engrossed in the beauty of the artwork and the history behind every painting. Remember to visit the castle early in the day if you want to explore all the galleries inside it but if you want to visit this gallery specifically, later afternoon is best to avoid large crowds. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Dresden itinerary 1 day.
