I hang more sparsely than my parents would have done, giving each picture its own space and lighting works very carefully. Many of the artists, whose works are shown by the gallery, exhibited in Paris and the French influence is clear but the work itself belongs to a wider European rather than to a specifically French movement.
The highlight on his stand is a painting by Lucien Levy-Dhurmer — entitled Regret, which is regarded as an icon of symbolist painting.

This suite of rooms fig. The Elector of Saxony and King of Poland designed these rooms as a display of his power and prestige.

PE , , , , These experiences have been drawn upon in creating the completely redesigned new permanent exhibition. The design concept follows the principle of hanging paintings according to geographical origin and school, while also drawing attention to certain important themes in each period. Furthermore, the exhibition will highlight the mutual influences of painting and sculpture, as well as underlining the importance of antique sculpture for Renaissance and Baroque painting fig. In the Sculpture Hall in the east wing, the important collection of antiquities will again be on display.
This hall was originally intended and planned by Gottfried Semper to house the historic plaster casts from the Mengs collection — however, these objects were removed from there in the late 19 th century. Hm The origins of the SKD can be seen mainly in the sixteenth-century Kunstkammer of the Saxon electors.

Having travelled to Versailles, he had become acquainted with the splendour of the Sun King, the absolute monarch, and had something similar in mind for his own residence. In this way, he laid the foundation stone for a museum structure, which can still be recognized today. Paintings had to be sold and silverwork was melted down. By , the gallery building designed by Gottfried Semper completed and closed off the Zwinger grounds towards the Elbe River, and even in those early days the Sistine Madonna by Raphael was presented prominently in a room of its own.
In , under the direction of archaeologist Georg Treu, the Albertinum was opened, showing ancient sculptures and plaster casts. At the same time, committed citizens were active even back then in associations that supported the collections, purchasing, for example works by Chagall, Klee and Kandinsky. As early as , preparations for moving museum treasures got underway and by most of the artworks were safely stored in the region.
After the devastating bomb attacks in February , many of the museum buildings, including the Residenzschloss Royal Palace and the Zwinger were reduced to rubble. The majority of the objects outside Dresden survived the war; they were then taken by the Red Army to Moscow, Kiev and Leningrad as trophy art. In difficult conditions, the buildings were reconstructed and the collections made accessible to the public again. In , the ethnographical museums in Dresden, Leipzig and Herrnhut joined the museum network. With German reunification, it became possible to begin the reconstruction of the Dresden Residenzschloss as a residence for the arts and sciences, which had been initiated in East Germany.
Work on the royal palace is expected to reach completion in Looking at some of the events of the past and present years gives a vivid impression of how the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden keep changing. With war, capitulation, revolution and the abdication of the last king of Saxony, the year was the turning point, and for the Dresden art collections, this was no different: They were placed in the care of the Ministry of Culture,.

Fortunately, we can learn much about the man through his art — even years after his death. Any journalist wishing to interview Rembrandt would come armed with the basic biographical facts. His father was a Leiden miller, his mother the daughter of a prosperous baker. In Leiden, Rembrandt was closely associated with Jan Lievens — , who suggested that he might learn more in Amsterdam from his former teacher, the history painter Pieter Lastman — In Rembrandt began a sixmonth apprenticeship with Lastman.
Visitors to the Lakenhal will be able to look over shoulder, so to speak, of the ambitious young Rembrandt and see how his talent developed until he established himself as an independent artist in Besides formal training, how else did Rembrandt hone his artistic skills? Here, facts are of scant help. For answers, look to the art. Rembrandt started with himself!

No other 17th-century artist produced as many self-portraits. As a rising talent in Leiden until just before his death, he rendered his own likeness with penetrating acumen. The choice was practical. What other model is as cheap, patient and readily available?
Peering into a mirror, Rembrandt practised endlessly, until able to convey powerful contrasts of light and capture subtle shadows. He made funny faces and learned to express emotions — then portrayed himself in endless roles, dressed in old-fashioned or biblical costume. After mastering his own visage, Rembrandt stepped outside. Fascinated by picturesque daily life, he sympathetically drew and etched countless beggars and street folk in Leiden.
In Amsterdam, where he settled permanently in , he recorded soldiers, pedlars, maidservants and children. They served him well: such figures inspired characters in his biblical scenes — for example, St Peter in Prison , soon on loan to the Jewish Historical Museum, Amsterdam 13 September—10 November Madly in love, the couple became engaged in June After his marriage, Rembrandt enjoyed huge success. In he bought a house on the SintAntonisbreestraat now the Jodenbreestraat, the home of the Rembrandthuis Museum.
Instead, it will undergo a comprehensive restoration programme starting in July, when it will be encased in a glass chamber so the public can follow the project on site and online.
