About

Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister (Old Masters Picture Gallery) in Dresden, Germany, displays around 750 paintings from the 15th to the 18th centuries. It includes major Italian Renaissance works as well as Dutch and Flemish paintings. Outstanding works by German, French and Spanish painters of the period are also among the gallery's attractions. The Old Masters are part of the Dresden State Art Collections. The collection is located in the Semper Gallery, the gallery wing of the Zwinger.

With master works including Raphael’s "Sistine Madonna", Giorgione’s "Sleeping Venus", Correggio’s "Holy Night", Cranach’s "St. Catherine Altar", Vermeer’s "Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window" and Bellotto’s views of Dresden, the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister enjoys a reputation that is international in scope. Other widely-known paintings by such artists as Van Eyck, Dürer, Holbein, Rubens, Rembrandt, Poussin, Claude Lorrain, Murillo, Canaletto, Tiepolo, Raeburn and Graff lead visitors to in-depth contemplation. Indeed, the collection of the Gemäldegalerie is a rare treasure trove.
