Artworks from the Glyptothek Museum

Glyptothek Museum, Germany

The Glyptothek is Munich’s oldest public museum and the only museum in the world that is solely dedicated to ancient sculpture. The name Glyptothek is a modern word invented from the combination of the Greek words glyphein ‘to sculpture’ and theke ‘repository', meaning therefore a storage place for sculptures. Here Greek and Romanmarble statues are presented, free-standing, under naked brick walls and vaulted ceilings.
