The Gemäldegalerie proudly looks back on a long tradition of academic research and technical analysis of its paintings. The encyclopaedic integrity and systematic structure of its collection provide a perfect foundation for scholarly inquiry.

In recent decades, the Gemäldegalerie has striven to study its own holdings and present the findings of its research to an interested public in a series of critical catalogues. In addition to these collection-centric projects, the museum is also currently involved in several national and international collaborative research ventures.
