This exhibition presents a comprehensive selection of the most outstanding works from the Princely Collections. It contains well over 100 of the most important paintings and sculptures from the Early Renaissance in Italy to the Baroque period.
Iconic works such as Antico's Bust of Marcus Aurelius, the life-size bronze sculptures of Adriaen de Vries, and Peter Paul Rubens's famous Venus in Front of the Mirror are the focus of an exhibition that takes visitors on a fascinating journey through five centuries of art history.
Carving out his own particular niche, Hermann Nitsch's works are beguiling explosions of color that defy conventional approaches to painting and employ a literal handful of innovative techniques to bring his canvases to life – he sometimes uses his own palms for paintbrushes!
With this exhibition, the Albertina presents Nitsch's paintings in their own right, impressively demonstrating Nitsch's significance, and tracing his oeuvre's development from the early 1960s to the present.
Known for his highly expressive paintings employing geometric shapes and stripes, Sean Scully is a prime example of the abstract art movement. In this exhibition, however, an entirely new side of the artist comes to light in a series of works presented to the public for the first time ever.
Eleuthera is an intimate series of 23 large-format oil paintings showing Scully's seven-year-old son Oisín playing at the beach on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. This exhibition shows all of these oil paintings by Scully as well as smaller pastels, drawings, and photographic works.
Located in the largest of the Habsburg's residential palaces, the Albertina is home to the biggest and most valuable graphical collection in the world. See the permanent exhibition of the Batliner Collection, Monet to Picasso, 20 elegant staterooms, and more!
Fast-track your way into the Habsburg's world of fine art and imperial majesty. The Albertina is a truly sumptuous museum experience. Situated in the very heart of Vienna's city center, the museum today owns masterpieces by Da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Dürer, Rubens.
But the highlight is surely the Batliner Collection, one of Europe's most important compilations of Modernist art. This permanent display features Impressionism and Post-Impressionism artists such as Monet, Degas, Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Gauguin, plus Picasso's early Cubist pictures, works of his from the 1940s, never-before-exhibited prints and experimental paintings.
Browse 20 exquisite Habsburg staterooms spread over two floors of the palace. The original Louis XVI décor was ordered from the royal court ateliers in Paris and Versailles for Duke Albert - so you know they're extra-fancy.
Don't miss the centerpiece; the elegantly be-chandeliered Hall of the Muses. Picture the parties that must have been held in this space as you box-step along the parquet floor.
With a heady mix of artistic achievement and royal opulence, the Albertina is an ideal p(a)lace to go and get swept up in the spirit of Vienna's imperial past.
