Kunst von der Romantik bis zur Gegenwart: Das Albertinum in Dresden

Upcoming events

Art from the Romantic period to the present day

Walking through the Albertinum is like opening a museum-sized art history reference work and leafing through its pages. With a range extending from Romanticism to the present, the Albertinum is a place where painting meets sculpture, East meets West and today meets tomorrow.
