The Alte Nationalgalerie is the original home of the Nationalgalerie, whose collections today are divided between the Neue Nationalgalerie, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, the Friedrichswerdersche Kirche, Museum Berggruen and the Sammlung Scharf-Gerste
The Alte Nationalgalerie’s holdings include Romantic and Impressionist masterpieces as well as a world-class collection of works by Adolph Menzel. The museum’s collection dates back to a gift from the banker Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Wagener to the Prussian state in 1861, a bequest of 262 works with an emphasis on Belgian history painting and the Düsseldorf school. However, this collection also included Caspar David Friedrich’s "Lonely Tree" and Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s "Gothic Church on a Rock by the Sea", which formed the foundation for what are today two of the Nationalgalerie’s most significant suites of works from the early 19th century.
