THE ORIGINS OF THE ALBERTINA: FROM DÜRER TO NAPOLEON   
March 14 - June 29, 2014

200 masterpieces from the collection of the Albertina are shown together, presented in the context of the life-story and passion for art-collecting of its founders, Prince Albert of Saxony and Archduchess Marie Christine.  The exhibition brings together the highlights of the Albertina holdings, from Michelangelo through Rembrandt and Rubens to Caspar David Friedrich, supplemented by loans from throughout the world. 

The Albertina is one of the great museums of the world, housed in the magnificent Albertina Palace. Their website is exceptional, offering images of much of the extraordinary collection.

Among the wonderous things to see at the Albertina is the relatively new Batliner Collection. Just seven years ago, one of Europe’s greatest private collections of classical modern art came to the Albertina from the Rita and Herbert Batliner Foundation in Liechtenstein.

The collection of international modern art spans the most fascinating chapters from more than 130 years of art history: French Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, German Expressionism, Fauvism and the Russian avant-garde from1905-35, to contemporary.  It includes works by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Amedeo Modigliani, Henri Matisse, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Alberto Giacometti, Marc Chagall, Francis Bacon, Rothko, Anselm Kiefer and Gerhard Richter., There are 40 pieces of Picasso’s oeuvre, including ten paintings and numerous drawings and one-of-a-kind ceramics
