The Picture Gallery of Old Masters in Dresden – The language of painting
As one of the greatest and most exquisite collections of the Saxon electors and kings, the Picture Gallery of Old Master´s established the fame of Dresden as a city of arts all over the world. Dive into the world of famous and unique European masterpieces from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the Baroque era.
Look, how Raphael’s “Sistine Madonna” makes us becoming silent, and find out what Giorgione’s “Sleeping Venus” is all about. Discover the bright light of a child in Correggio’s “Holy Night” and the art of diplomacy in Tizian’s “Zinsgroschen”.
