Dresden Travel Tip:
The Kupferstichkabinett (English: Collection of Prints, Drawings and Photographs) is part of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen (State Art Collections) of Dresden, Germany. Since 2004 it has been located in Dresden Castle.
Like many of Dresden's notable collections, this print room traces its origins to the Prince-electors of Saxony. The art chamber of the House of Wettin, established around 1560, became an independent museum of prints and drawings in 1720. The collection was expanded in the following centuries. It now describes itself as the oldest museum of graphic arts in the German-speaking world.
The bombing of Dresden in February 1945 had a severe impact on the collection. Despite evacuation of the items, losses were high. Some of the most famous exhibits were confiscated by the Soviet Union after the war and did not return to Dresden until the late 1950s, when they were put back on display in the Albertinum.
