Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister

in detail

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.

To increase the visitor experience and at the same time facilitate a new encounter with familiar works, a completely new hanging of the paintings was devised in 2013. In the future, no visitor will miss out on any of the collection’s key works.

The new museum circuit leading visitors through 23 halls is based on the understanding that European art history can be read as one integrated historical narrative. The categorization into different schools may reflect a traditional art historical principle but it is not the only way of reading our artworks. In this way, new focal points emerge, emphasizing, for instance, the European portraiture of Dürer’s day, altar works from around 1500, Mannerism, Caravaggism, European still lifes of the 17th century, or art from the Age of Enlightenment. Comparisons across national borders suggest themselves in ways previously invisible at the Gemäldegalerie.
