Staatliche Antikensammlungen

in detail

The State Antiques Collection was installed in Georg Friedrich Ziebland's Classicist exhibition building, erected 1838 to 1848, in 1967. The destructions in 1944 necessitated a complete reorganisation of the interior. The different antiques collections of the Dukes and Kings of Wittelsbach were united here in 1967.

The main floor has five halls with masterpieces of Greek vases of between 1400 and 300 BC, including a large number of famous pieces such as the drinking cup showing Dionysus' ship by the potter and painter Exekias. Another highlight is the Etruscan gold jewellery of between 680 and 530 BC. Other genres of Antique art are also represented by outstanding examples: a beautiful series of clay statuettes of all periods; bronze statuettes and implements, including the mirror from Hermione or the "Girl from Beroa", examples of glass art with the earliest transparent glass vessels or the late Antique diatreta glass from Cologne, one of the most beautiful examples of this craft.
