The Dresden Gallery, already famous in the eighteenth century, quickly became one of the favorite places for the Grand Tour traveler to visit after it opened as a public museum in 1855. Miraculously preserved from the bombing of Dresden in the Second World War, its fabulous holdings are to a large extent the proud heritage of several generations of the court of Saxony-one of the richest and most aristocratic in Europe.
