The core of the collection is the complete bequest of the painter Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872), who was extremely important for German painting in the 19th century, and his son Franz, who worked as head librarian at the Royal Public Library in Dresden from 1887-1907. Further extensive collections concern the Leipzig painter Veit Hans Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1764-1841) and the best Wagner singer of his time Ludwig (1836-1865).
