A Celebration of Dresden - Art and Architecture
Lecture | The Menuhin Hall
Tuesday 19 March 2013 - 10:00 until 12:00
Dresden celebrated its 800th anniversary in 2006. Renowned as the 'Florence of the North', its eighteenth century buildings have been faithfully restored. The Green Vaults display an array of dazzling artefacts. The Old and New Masters Picture Galleries are among the finest in Europe. Oriental and Meissen porcelain is on view in the historic Rococo Zwinger Palace. We look at the charming town of Meissen and its famous factory, the Saxon rulers' hunting-lodge at Moritzburg and the Decorative Arts Museum at Pillnitz.
This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
