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.
For the rulers of Saxony, Italian painting was as interesting as the painting of the Netherlands. On our guided tour we will see paintings by Tiziano, Veronese, Raffael and Canaletto, as well as pictures by Peter Paul Rubens, Anthonis van Dyck, Rembrandt van Rijn and Jan Vermeer van Delft. But there is also beautiful Spanish, French and German painting to be find – Esteban Murillo, Claude Lorrain, Lucas Cranach and Albrecht Dürer are just a few famous names.
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”.
See what is written between the lines in the famous pictures by Rubens, van Dyck, Rembrandt and Vermeer. Here you may experience the strong hero Hercules in a very different way, and see, how Rembrandt mirrors you with a mischievous wink.
