Altes Museum. The Greek Collection

Altes Museum (Old Museum) is one of numerous buildings on the Museum Insel (Museum Isle) in Berlin (Germany). Originally it was created for all of Berlin’s art collections. Since 1904 it is housing the Antikensammlung (Collection of Classical Antiquities). The classical artifacts had been collected for more than 350 years.

Since 2011, its lower floor offers an impressive panorama of Greek art from the 9th to the 1st century BC. It is numerous sculptures of the Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic periods, vases, funerary and votive reliefs, architectural fragments, and other artifacts.

Below my photo impressions made May last year in the Ancient Greek Collection. Enjoy.
