Good exhibit of 20th century Germany painters

The museum is worth visiting for their exhibit of 20th century Germany artists, which is interesting and informative. The rest of their holdings are not particularly good.

I was hoping to see more impressionists at the Albertinum and was thus disappointed. I saw just one Manet, one Gauguin, and one Klimt. There were many paintings by German Romantic artists (a bit dull). The best part for me was the Otto Dix collection, particularly his masterpiece "War". I think the way this museum is described in guidebooks is... More

We really like Impressionist paintings and there are a wide selection in this bright and airy gallery, plenty of which we've never seen before. Definitely worth a visit.

Currently they offer Caspar David Friedrich combined to Johan Christian Dahl in a very special and exciting hanging. Those two artists of quite different origing are leading landscape painters of the so called European Romantic. For about 20 years boths painters shared home at Dresden and oppened the path for many, many successors through their individual, very specific way of... More

Now with the term "modern," one intends 19th and early 20th Century art. Excellent collection of the works of German Romanist Casper David Friedrich and many of the "Die Brucke" group. One can also find enough sculpture to last several lifetimes, from BCE to the 20th Century. 10 euros.

After you have done the Biggies, check out the Galerie Neue Meister. Move rapidly through early 19th century German Romantic and Nazarene paintings and pause to enjoy 20th century Dresden works by Expressionists, Secessionists (Art Nouveau), and contemporary painters such as Baselitz and Richter. Either ignore the sculpture gallery, or quickly locate the few impressive works. The Dresden museum managers... More

We were eager to see some modern art after all of the old masters we'd seen at the Gemalde and the Zwinger. However, we were not pleased with the large number of German romantic paintings and sculpture here. Unless this kind of art is your cup of tea, we suggest going directly to the most modern section of paintings where... More

This museum is filled with 20th century treasures, ending with a beautiful showing of Gerhard Richter's work. Definitely worth a stop.

This museum was my biggest disappointment in Dresden. After visiting Zwinger I was in a high spirit to see some expresionists, Gauguin and van Gogh pictures but I did not find any of them. It looked like an exhibition about Egypt by Slevogt and Klee took their places. The most irritating thing in this museum was that you had to... More

Shockingly overpriced and up to every trick (e.g. They won't let you in with a bag or a jacket, but charge you a euro per item for leaving things in the cloakroom), The Caspar David Friedrichs were worth seeing and there are lots of other big names (Monet, Gauguin, Picasso, Klee, Klimt etc.) but we found the sculpture display rather...
