Baroque, Renaissance and Antiquity in dialogue
The museum restored numerous antiquities, paintings as well as picture frames during the building's modernisation, and in a new display for the first time integrated the sculpture collection up to 1800 into the gallery. An opulent, sensuous presentation of over 700 paintings and approximately 450 sculptures is the result. Conceived under the Director Stephan Koja, the exhibition of sculptures and paintings, including masterworks by Raphael, Titian, Rembrandt, Rubens and Cranach, establishes new points of contact. Upon the backdrop of Antiquity, the Baroque and Renaissance periods are thus rendered more comprehensible.
