Dresden Gallery

14 06 2007

I only just had time to have a look at the Dresden Gallery, I wish I’d come here earlier on. This looked like a good comparison for a typical British Victorian art gallery. Not certain that it is based on a real gallery but I presume it is.

There are lots of rooms inside a very grand building with courtyard. The art is very detailed and you can right-click on paintings for more information. I sat down in one room to look at the art.Sitting down in Dresden Gallery

It’s easy to imagine the any UK gallery laid out like this.

Just found their website, with this information:

Visit one of the world’s most famous museums, the Old Masters Picture Gallery of the Dresden State Art Collections. There you can view great masterpieces of key importance for the history of art, such as Raphael’s “Sistine Madonna” or Giorgione’s “Sleeping Venus”.

All the rooms of the museum have been reconstructed true to scale on the “Dresden Gallery” island in Second Life ® and all 750 masterpieces in the permanent exhibition are on display.

The Curator

The Old Masters Picture Gallery in Second Life, known as “Dresdengallery”, is the virtual clone of the real museum located at Dresden (Germany). The magnificent rooms of the museum have been reproduced in three dimensions and true to scale: the foyer, the staircases, all 56 halls and cabinets, and every one of the 750 paintings, pastels and tapestries are on display.
