Old Picture Gallery

Old Masters a-go-go!

The wealth of painting and sculpture in Munich is such that there are now three separate museums to house it all. The Alte Pinakothek is the most prestigious - and is both one of the world's oldest art museums and its most distinguished collection of Old Masters. Neoclassical in style yet in museum terms innovative for the day, this enormous gallery was inaugurated in 1836 for the collection of Bavaria's royal house of Wittelsbach. Its impressive halls display more than 8,000 works ranging from the Middle Ages through the 19th century, particularly strong in the oevre of Peter Paul Rubens and other Dutch masters such as Rembrandt, but also other greats of European art such as Dürer, Cranach, Raphael, Da Vinci, and El Greco.
