The expression originated when the Berlin Collection of Old Masters was housed in the Old Museum, and Richard Muther entitled his description of these paintings (published in 1889), The Cicerone of the Royal Picture Gallery in Berlin.Since that time the Kaiser Friedrich Museum, opened in 1904, contains the magnificent collection of Old Masters, and a Berliner speaks of the Museum, or rather of the Kaiser Friedrich, when he refers to the most important collection in Berlin, and when he mentions the Gallery he refers to the National Gallery devoted to the paintings of nineteenth century, or so-called Modern Artists.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
