Sculpture Collection & Painting of the 13th-18th Century
The Bode Museum's sculpture collection possesses works from the early Middle Ages to the late 18th century from German-speaking countries, France, the Netherlands, and Italy and Spain. A major focus of the collection is Italian sculpture from various schools. Among them are masterpieces such as the bronze head of Lodovico Gonzaga or the head fragment of the "Princess of Naples". Among the highlights of medieval sculpture collection are the Madonna of Presbyter Martinus and the Man of Sorrows by Giovanni Pisano, which at the same time link to the works of the early Renaissance. In addition, the exhibition houses late Gothic sculptures and works of German Renaissance and Baroque sculpture. From the Rococo and Early Classicist periods, the collection includes works by Ignaz Günther, Joseph Anton Feuchtmayer and Jean Antoine Houdon, among others.
Works from the Picture Gallery are also on display in conjunction with European sculpture.
Late Antique and Byzantine Art
The collection of Late Antique and Byzantine includes works of art and everyday objects from virtually the entire ancient Mediterranean region in the period from the 3rd to the 15th century. These include late antique sarcophagi from Rome and works of ornamental sculpture from the Eastern Roman Empire. Precious ivory carvings and mosaic icons testify to the high standard of craftsmanship and artistry of Byzantine court art. Objects of everyday life and Christian religion from Egypt, in turn, provide clues to daily life. The collection also includes works from North Africa, Ethiopia, Constantinople, Greece, as well as the Middle East, the Balkans and Russia.
Coin Cabinet in the Bode Museum
With approximately 500,000 objects, the Coin Cabinet at the Bode Museum is one of the largest numismatic collections in the world. The exhibition covers coin series from the beginning of coinage in the 7th century BC in Asia Minor to the coins and medals of the 21st century. It includes comprehensive holdings of ancient Greek and Roman coins, as well as European coins of the Middle Ages and modern times, and Islamic-Oriental coins.
