Artists Jeremias Altmann and Andreas Tanzer have been collaborating for years on the series Grey Time – a continually growing collection focused on decay.
While they usually work in strict isolation, the two-part oil painting Bruchteile was created in the public galleries of the Kunsthistorisches Museum itself.
Across several galleries, the artists have interpreted artifacts from Ancient Egypt and classical antiquity to sixteenth and seventeenth-century paintings.
Created roughly 600 years ago, there are only around 20 surviving works by Jan van Eyck still around today. And this exhibition has got three of them! It offers an amazing glimpse into the art produced during the Early Northern Renaissance, when the Burgundian Low Countries witnessed a unique flowering of courtly and urban civilization.
Jan van Eyck (c.1390-1441), the favorite court painter of Philipp the Good, duke of Burgundy, is celebrated for his virtuosity in the use of oil paint and his skill in combining naturalism and realism with brilliant colors. Already regarded as an epoch-defining artist by his contemporaries, he was soon renowned throughout Europe as the founder of Early Netherlandish painting.

The building's twin, located directly across Maria-Theresien-Platz, is the Naturhistorisches Museum (Natural History Museum). It was opened at the same time as Kunsthistorisches Museum and is well worth a visit if you aren't all museumed out.
