Academy of Fine Arts

The Academy of Fine Arts is not only an educational establishment, but also one of the finest galleries of Old Masters. It was built in 1872—6, by Theophil Hansen, as a school and museum. In 1907, Adolf Hitler applied to be admitted but was refused a place on the grounds that he lacked talent. Today, the gallery shows changing exhibitions. Its pride is late-Gothic and early- Renaissance works, including some pieces by Rubens, a winged altarpiece by Hieronymus Bosch depicting the Last Judgement and works by Titian, Cranach and Botticelli. It also has some 17th-century Dutch and Flemish landscapes and an Austrian collection.
