ALBERTINA

HISTORY MEETS MODERNISM

Located in Vienna, the Albertina is the largest Habsburg residential palace. It blends an imperial flair with unrivalled masterpieces of art.. The historical setting of this internationally acclaimed modern museum makes a visit to the Albertina an unforgettable experience. The city’s largest residential Habsburg palace boasts 21 beautifully furnished staterooms, making it one of the most exquisite classical palaces in the whole of Europe.

Since it reopened in 2003, the Albertina has presented an impressive number of exhibitions, showing foremost works of art dating from the 15th century to the present day. With its special “Albrecht Dürer”, “Picasso” and “Van Gogh” exhibitions, the Albertina has drawn a record number of visitors during the past few years. The Albertina is one of Austria’s most popular museums, making it a major attraction for city visitors and cultural travelers from all over the world.

THE HABSBURG STATE ROOMS
The exquisite state rooms take you back in time to the splendours of Classicism, while the elaborate façade bears testimony to the eminent role of the palace and the high social standing of its former owners, the Hapsburg family.
The highlight of any visit to the Albertina is a tour of the recently renovated and refurbished staterooms. Here the visitor obtains a first-hand insight into the breathtaking splendor and elegance of the Habsburg monarchy.
The palace, presented as a gift to Duke Albert and his wife Marie Christine – Maria Theresia’s favorite daughter – was built between 1745 and 1747 and extended between 1801 and 1805.
The 21 Habsburg state rooms are spread over two floors of the palace. The Hall of the Muses forms an imposing centerpiece, flanked on either side by stately apartments. Admire and enjoy the charm of their exquisite furniture and elaborate inlaid parquet floors, works of Joseph Danhauser, the famous Viennese craftsman.

MASTERWORKS OF MODERN ART – THE ALBERTINA COLLECTION
The recently opened permanent exhibition Masterworks of Modern Art covers more than 100 years of art history and its major developments – from classical modern art right up to the works of contemporary artists.

The permanent exhibition with paintings, pastels and gouaches by Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec and Signac centers around the French impressionists. A further section focuses on German expressionist painting, revolving around artists of “Die Brücke" and “Der Blaue Reiter" groups. The surrealist movement is represented by various works of Joan Miró, Max Ernst and René Magritte. Late works by Picasso and works by Jean Dubuffet, Lucio Fontana and Mark Rothko hail in the 20th century. Contemporary artists such as Gerhard Richter and Alex Katz round off the exhibition.
