Next to Brühl’s Terrace and directly on the side of the Fraunkirche Church, the old Royal Academy of Fine Arts, built in 1984, is located. It is found next to one of the three buildings which are currently part of the Superior School of Visual Arts in Dresden.
The building was built on Brühl’s Terrace by Constantin Lipsius between 1887-1894. The glass dome is famous for its shape and it is known as the Lemon Squeezer
The building was built on Brühl’s Terrace by Constantin Lipsius between 1887-1894. The glass dome is famous for its shape and it is known as the Lemon Squeezer. The parts destroyed during World War II have been restored and rebuilt since 1991.
The Brühl’s Terrace houses the painting and sculpture workshops, the graphic workshops, and the exhibitionrooms of the Academy, where the annual exhibitions of the graduates take place. Facing the Elba River, the
building has engraved the names of: Pheidias, Iktinos, Praxiteles, Polykleitos, Lysippos, Erwin Von Steinbach, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and Dürer on the wall and on the other side “DEM VATERLAND ZU ZIER UND EHR” – “For the Honor and Adornment of the Fatherland”.
The Academy also has, in addition to a splendid main building, another building for sculpture located on Pfotenhauerstrasse, whose workshops date back to 1910. The workshops for the courses of Restoration and Costume Design, and the technical college degree course for Theatre Setting are located at Güntzstrasse in the buildings of the former Academy of Applied Arts.
In 1764, the General Academy for Painting, Sculpture, Copperplate engraving and Architecture was founded by order of the electorate Friedrich Christian, belonging to the House of Fürstenberg from 1768 to 1786. Its first director was the French Charles Hutin. After the death of Hutin in 1776, Johann Eleazar Zeissig and Giovanni Battista Casanova were appointed alternating directors of the Academy.
The Academy was the successor installation of the first “School for Drawing and Painters” founded in 1680. It was one of the oldest academies of art in the German-speaking area. In 1950, the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts was merged with the Public Academy of Applied Art, the successor of the Royal Saxon School of Applied Art founded in 1875/1876, into the Superior Dresden Academy of Fine Arts.
Today, it belongs to the group of Superior Schools of Fine Arts in Germany, which with an unmistakable profile and with the best conditions, it is very attractive for a degree in the Fine Arts.
Today, it belongs to the group of Superior Schools of Fine Arts in Germany, which with an unmistakable profile and with the best conditions, it is very attractive for a degree in the Fine Arts. Generous and well- equipped workshops are available for students.
The possibilities for exhibitions at the Academy are excellent: with an octagon below the glass dome marking the view of the city, its lemon squeezer, and two large exhibition rooms adjacent to the former library, as well as the Brühl’s Terrace Gallery, provide the Academy with generous presentation surfaces which are available for all degree courses and co-operation partners.
In 1990 a new implementation was provided, which offered the opportunity for an innovative and organic development of the Academy. Notable international artists from the world of art are teaching in the Academy. The diverse courses and artistic tendencies to study painting, graphic arts and sculpture are developed in a broad way.
The classic cornerstones of artistic teaching at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts are complemented through discourse and artistic exchange with the project “New media” and the specialization of interdisciplinary artistic works. These conditions allow for the optimal use of all the offers and possibilities.

The diaphragm I use in these cases is f11. The reason is that the light projected by all these sources, appear with a titillating appearance that looks really pretty.
If you use large apertures such as f2.8 or f4, the spotlights produce a huge flash that easily ruins the photograph. Likewise, the use of ultraviolet filter is not recommended, since it produces flashes known as “flares”, which cause unsightly and annoying beams of light in our images.
