Albertinum – Art from the Romantic Period to the Present Day

The Albertinum in Dresden presents an innovative approach to the presentation of art by showcasing works from Romanticism to the present day, from Caspar David Friedrich to Gerhard Richter. It is known for its broad view across various art epochs and the outstanding quality of its collection, making it a leading museum in Germany. It showcases masterpieces from different periods, including Romanticism, Impressionism, Expressionism, and contemporary art. Visitors can experience an exciting interaction between contemporary art and established works. In addition to painting and sculpture, sound installations and videos are also presented. Particularly noteworthy are the permanent exhibitions of Gerhard Richter, whose archive is housed in the Albertinum. The collection also includes sculptures from over five millennia, starting from ancient cultures to the present day. Modernity is represented here by works of Auguste Rodin, who is considered a pioneer of modern sculpture. The exhibition also features works of classical modernism and contemporary sculpture, further developing the concept of subjective art. Various exhibition rooms in the Albertinum are dedicated to specific themes and epochs, such as the Fin de Siècle and the theme of morality in Neoclassical sculpture. There are also special exhibition rooms for rotating exhibitions on themes and artists of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries.
