Alte Pinakothek, Munich : Michelin's recommendations
This immense Venetian Renaissance style building was built between 1826 and 1836 to house the collections of paintings of the Wittelsbachs that had been made since the 16th C by Duke William IV. Masterpieces of European painting from the 14th-18th C are spread over two floors and presented in various rooms and cabinets. Among the early Dutch painting, see the works by Rogier van der Weyden (Retable of the Three Kings) and Hans Memling, the Seven Joys of Mary, a painting with many pictorial layers. Dürer is the most fascinating artist here, with Holbein Senior and Cranach the Elder among the Early Germans. Among the Italian Renaissance painters, you will see the works of Fra Angelico, Botticelli, and Raphael, including his Madone Tempi. Leonardo da Vinci, Veronese, Titian and Tintoretto are also represented here with some excellent works. Then there is French painting from the 17th and 18th C, with the works of Lorrain, Poussin (Les Métamorphoses d'Ovide), Boucher and his sensual images, Hubert Robert and his views of ruins. A visit to the Dutch and Flemish painters of the 17th C rediscovers Van Dyck, Rembrandt (Self-portrait), Frans Halz and Rubens (Hélène Fourment Putting on a Glove). A separate section is devoted to the Brueghels and the Cologne school represented by the work of Stephan Lochner among others.
