The Alte Pinakothek is one of the most interesting places to visit when you go to Munich. Created to accommodate the numerous paintings of Bavarian culture (at the beginning there were already more than eight thousand), in 1836 it gained its permanent  localization thanks to the work of the famous architect Leo von Klenze, who adapted the building to the kind of art gallery which it had been intended: collections of antiquity and the Renaissance.

A substantial contribution to the collection at the beginning came from Albert V, and it was during his reign that the city reached its peak from the artistic point of view. The Italian historical paintings came to the collection of the gallery thanks to the Savoys, but in addition to this sector, in particular paintings are from the major art centers around the world, such as France and Spain.

The Art Gallery has among its collections the most famous paintings, including:

• Giotto: The Last Supper (about 1310);

• Beato Angelico: Sympathy (1440);

• Antonello da Messina: Announced Virgin (1475);

• Leonardo Da Vinci: Virgin Mary of the Carnation (1475);

• Albrecht Durer: Grief over the Dead Christ (1500);

• Raffaello: Holy Family Canigiani (1507);

• Albrecht Altdorfer: The Battle of Alexander (1529);

• Pieter Paul Rubens: Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus (1620);


• Rembrandt: Deposition (1640).
