Albertina, Vienna

The Albertina in Vienna can look back on an exceptionally long history: Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen spent many decades building an extensive art collection starting from 1776. After various changes of ownership and relocations, this collection eventually became the property of the Republic of Austria and found its current home in the 1920s with the name "Albertina". In the 1990s, the Albertina had to be closed for more than ten years for extensive restoration, redesign and modernisation efforts and was re-opened in 2003 as a modern centre of art.

In addition to the print collection with more than 900,000 objects, the Albertina houses exhibitions of painting, sculpture, photography, and architecture from all important epochs and 20 staterooms in the style of the Habsburg archdukes. Of particular note is the private permanent loan from Rita and Herbert Batliner, which enables the Albertina to show one of the most important European collections of international classical Modernism. Today, the Albertina is one of the most popular sights in Vienna, attracting several hundred thousand visitors a year.

The originals of the artworks shown here are on display at the Albertina in Vienna.
