Dresden Gallery

Dresden Gallery is modeled after the Real Life Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen, Dresden, Germany, translated into English means: "Dresden State Art Collection of Dresden, Germany, owned by the State of Saxony" opened in 1855 and is one of the world's famous museums!

In Second Life the Dresden Gallery resides in Dresden and has 750 pictures of the Real Life Masters making this the biggest collection of Real Life masterpieces on display in Second Life. Displaying artwork of John Paul Rubens, Raphael, Giorgione, and Vermeer to name a few!

The museum features an Acoustiguide Tour for free, don on your headphones and touch the audio symbol and listen to the information about the artwork you are viewing. This is a new feature added since I last visited the museum! If you don't wish to use the audio guide, then click on the pictures and you will get a notecard telling you who painted it, when they painted it and the Gallery ownership number.

This is a must see for all Second Lifer's who enjoy art! The Dresden Gallery has lasted for all the years I have been in Second Life and I hope it continues with its success!
