Description

The Old Masters Collection of the Dresden Picture-Gallery is one of the most important art collections in the world, featuring unique masterworks, such as Raphael's "Sixtine Madonna", Giorgione's "Sleeping Venus" and Titian's "Tribute Money". It provides one of the most important overviews of the works of the old masters, or as Louis Aragon remarked "the reflection of mankind". The gallery building near the "Zwinger", designed by Gottfried Semper, acts as an architectural enhancement to the great paintings. Most of works were acquired by August the Strong and his son in the 18th century, and include pieces that date back to the 16th century.show more
