Berlin’s Old Masters Spark Protests
Berlin’s Old Masters are at the center of a fiery debate as plans to move them from the Gemäldegalerie, to make room for 20th-century art, sparks petitions and angry newspaper articles.
With 3,000 works spanning five centuries, Berlin’s collection of Old Masters is one of the greatest worldwide, and includes works by Raphael, Vermeer, Dürer, and Caravaggio. Their move from the Gemäldegalerie was announced after the city was gifted a private collection of 150 Surrealist artworks worth US$185 million.
