Directions to Old Pinakothek
One of the world´s most important collections of paintings can be found in the alte Pinakothek (old picutre gallery). This grand museum was designed by the neo-classicist architect Leo von Klenze. The building, based on the Renaissance palaces of northern Italy, but of unrendered brick, used to be the largest gallery in the world back in 1836 and was heralded as a masterpiece of proportion.
The main works in the Old Pinakothek have been collected by the ruling Wittelsbach dynasty from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The development of art from the Middle Ages, through the Renaissance and Baroque, and up to the end of the Rococo period can be traced in these works.
The Duerer Room shows paintings by famous artists such as Gruenewald, Cranach and Altdorfer as well as masterpieces by Duerer himself. The Italian Rooms display major works by da Vinci, Botticelli, Titian, Tintoretto and Tiepolo. The Canigiani Holy Family was the first painting by Raphael to reach Germany. Masterpieces by Spanish artists such as Velázquez, Murillo and Zurbarán are also to be found, as are works by the Dutch painters Brueghel, Rembrandt, van Dyck and Ruisdael. The collection of works by Peter Paul Rubens is quite unique.
