The tour through the exhibition begins with several masterpieces by Caspar David Friedrich, the most important German Romantic artist. It then proceeds in chronological order, featuring further representatives of the Romantic movement (Carl Gustav Carus, Johan Christian Dahl, Ludwig Richter), French and German Impressionists (Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Max Liebermann, Max Slevogt), Expressionists such as Otto Dix and the Brücke artists (Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff) as well as representatives of the Dresden Secession (Bernhard Kretzschmar, Carl Lohse). For the first time a full room is dedicated to each of the artists A. R. Penck and Georg Baselitz. Another new section is that entitled “Art in the divided Germany / Post-1989 art”, in which successive rooms present and compare art from the GDR and the FRG (Werner Tübke, Wolfgang Mattheuer, Sigmar Polke, Günter Fruhtrunk, Norbert Tadeusz) and works by East German and West German artists (Eberhard Havekost, Neo Rauch, Thoralf Knobloch, Johannes Kahrs).
New media are represented in the form of (sound and video) installations and video films. The tour ends with two halls containing works by Gerhard Richter, which the artist himself designed and for which he has created new works. Occasionally there are surprising encounters with works from the Skulpturensammlung, which is also housed in the Albertinum. The exhibition of the Skulpturensammlung begins with Auguste Rodin and, like the Galerie Neue Meister, it takes the visitor right up to the contemporary era.
