Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister

The Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden, Germany, displays around 750 paintings from the 15th to the 18th centuries. It includes major Italian Renaissance works as well as Dutch and Flemish paintings. Outstanding works by German, French and Spanish painters of the period are also among the gallery's attractions. The Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister is part of the Dresden State Art Collections. The collection is located in the Semper Gallery, the gallery wing of the Zwinger.

Since the Sempergalerie reopened on February 29, 2020, the collection has been presented in a newly designed form. The colors of the walls are used for structuring. The Italians' works are displayed on red walls, while the German and Dutch paintings hang in front of green wall coverings. Spanish and French pictures of the 17th century are presented on a blue background.

The permanent exhibition consists of around 700 paintings, which corresponds to around 40% of the portfolio. The relatively dense hanging of these pictures takes place in ornate gold frames.

The museum is visited over half a million times a year.
