The Old Masters Picture Gallery is home to some of the biggest names from the Renaissance and Baroque periods: Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Dürer, Hohlbein, Titian. The 750 works from the 15th to 18th centuries all belong to the first league of art history. Above all, Augustus the Strong's son, Elector Frederick Augustus III and King of Poland, provided the collection with heavyweights. The purchase of the Sistine Madonna from Piacenza in Italy can also be traced back to him. Because all these paintings soon no longer had enough space in the palace, nor in the former stable building that had been specially converted for them, Johann Gottfried Semper built the Picture Gallery in the mid-19th century, which at the same time gave the Zwinger its final finish.
