Akademie der Bildenen Künste (Academy of Fine Arts)
Akademie der Bildenen Künste (Academy of Fine Arts) Review
If the teachers here had admitted Adolf Hitler as an art student in 1907 and 1908 instead of rejecting him, history might have proved very different. The Academy was founded in 1692, but the present Renaissance Revival building dates from the late 19th century. The idea was conservatism and traditional values, even in the face of a growing movement that scorned formal rules. The Academy includes a museum focusing on Old Masters. The collection is mainly of interest to specialists, but Hieronymus Bosch's Last Judgment triptych hangs here—an imaginative, if gruesome, speculation on the hereafter.
