Notable faculty and alumni

Former Artist Professors

Founded in 1764, the Dresden Art Academy acquired considerable importance. One of its most illustrious teachers was Bernardo Belotto, the painter of the world-famous town scapes of Dresden. At the beginning of the 19th century, painters such as Anton Graff and Adrian Zingg made the Dresden Academy one of the most important art schools in Europe. Ernst Rietschel, Gottfried Semper and Ludwig Richter consolidated the reputation of the academy, which experienced a further zenith around the turn of the century. Many other eminent artists and scholars closely associated with the history of the Academy include Giovanni Casanova, Caspar David Friedrich, Oskar Kokoschka and Otto Dix who taught at the Dresden Academy and shaped its profile.
