One of the five temple-like buildings located on Berlin’s famous 'Museum Island’, the Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery) is one of 17 gallery and museums across the city which make up the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. Alte Nationalgalerie’s holdings include an impressive range of Romantic and impressionist masterpieces, as well as a world-class collection of works by Adolph Menzel. In 1896 it became the first museum to acquire impressionist art when it purchased Édouard Manet’s In the Conservatory and Claude Monet’s View of Vétheuil. Today, the collection of the Alte Nationalgalerie is a historical one, and is only expanded under exceptional circumstances.
