The illustrious holdings of the Dresden Skulpturensammlung range in date from classical antiquity via the art of the Renaissance, Baroque and Expressionism down to the 21st century, from Polycletus to Giambologna and Permoser, and from Rodin and Lehmbruck to Glöckner and Cimiotti.

Skulpturensammlung up to 1800

The reopened Semperbau am Zwinger houses the Skulpturensammlung (Sculpture Collection) up to 1800 with antique pictorial works as well as sculptures and statues of the early modern period in common with the masterpieces of the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister. The mutually stimulating interaction between painting and sculpture can be vividly experienced during the museum tour.
