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...

Our main reason for choosing this gallery was the special exhibition of works by Otto Dix, a favourite of the German friend we were travelling with. She thoroughly enjoyed it. I appreciate his vision but find I can only look at it for a very short time, it is so disturbing. I did find other work I could enjoy, such... More

The museum has a very interesting collection of sculptures, and they are displayed in a way it really tells a story, not simply lying around. I recommend because sometimes all museums have the same painting styles and in Albertinum you finally see something different, so it is a very pleasant visit.

The Albertinum is a most impressive building as we found when walking along by the side to the entrance. The downstairs foyer is open, bright and spacious and a very relaxing space. The audioguide was an informative accompaniment. The more modern sculptures are fabulous. At the beginning is the charming Little Dancer by Degas. The extent of the works by... More
