Alte Nationalgalerie

The collection of the National Gallery is divided betweeen the Old National Gallery, the New National Gallery, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, the Museum Berggruen, the Collection Scharf-Gerstenberg and the Friedrichswerder Church. The Old National Gallery (Alte Nationalgalerie) is home to 19th century sculptures and paintings. As a result of the political division of Germany, the National Gallery was divided up, too: important masterpieces remained in West-Berlin. The Alte Nationalgalerie is regarded as a comprehensive collection of art of the era between the French Revolution and the First World War, between Classicism and Secessions. The collection also contains rich holdings of high quality Impressionist painting. Masterpieces by Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne and sculptures by Auguste Rodin were purchased at an early date.
