Alte Pinakothek. Nothing except Paintings

Pinakothek is a museum, which contains only pictures, and nothing distracts from their contemplation. In this sense, the old Munich Pinakothek earnestly observes the purity of the genre. The paintings by German masters- Albrecht Durer, Stefan Lochner, Albrecht Altdorfer are the pride of the collection. Works by Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt van Rijn, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens, Filippo Lippi, Sandro Botticelli, Titian, Tintoretto, Raphael, Velazquez, El Greco are among those of celebrated Europeans. A total of about 700 works from the XIV to XVIII centuries were collected.

William IV, Duke of Bavaria (1493-1550) and his wife Maria Jacoba, Margravine of Baden (1507-1580) laid the basis of the current collection. They ordered talented compatriots to create paintings on themes from Greek, Roman, Jewish and early Christian history. Subsequently, Ludwig I played a major role in the creation of the Pinakothek. Wishing to acquaint the people with the Fine Arts, he bought and systematized paintings himself and commissioned architect Leo von Klenze to build a special building to store them. In 1836, the Pinakothek was opened.
