The Alberti­na safe­guards one of the most impor­tant and exten­sive graph­ic art col­lec­tions in the world. It com­pris­es around 50,000 draw­ings and water­colours, as well as some 900,000 graph­ic art works, rang­ing from the Late Goth­ic era to the present.

The arc of exquis­ite works stretch­es from Leonar­do da Vin­ci, Michelan­ge­lo Buonar­roti and Raphael San­ti through Albrecht Dür­er, Peter Paul Rubens and Rem­brandt Har­men­sz van Rijn to Claude Lor­rain, Hon­oré Frag­o­nard and Paul Cézanne. In the mod­ern sec­tion, the hold­ings range across Egon Schiele, Gus­tav Klimt and Oskar Kokosch­ka via Pablo Picas­so and Jack­son Pol­lock to Robert Rauschen­berg, Andy Warhol, Alex Katz, and final­ly to Franz Gertsch, Georg Baselitz and Anselm Kiefer.
