The Gemaldegalerie

The Gemaldegalerie Museum at the Kulturforum near Potsdamer Platz holds a huge collection of art from the 14th century to the 18th century. It's an Aladdin's Cave of art and my visit there today for two hours just scratched the surface (excuse the pun :), allowing me to view some of the most famous paintings, pictured below and spend an hour making a drawing of one of them.
