BAROQUE AND CLASSICISM


The art currents of the 17th and 18th century are represented in the collection with nary a gap.

Complexes of world-class works include the drawings of Peter Paul Rubens and Rembrandt, whose entire body of graphic art work is also preserved in the shape of excellent original prints.

Owing to a predilection of Duke Albert (of Saxe-Teschen, after whom the Albertina is named) for French art, a considerable collection of drawings by Claude Lorrain, Francois Boucher and Honoré Fragonard has also been assembled.
The founder of the collection also held a strong preference in acquiring the works of his contemporaries - particularly by the Dresden landscape artists. The Albertina, therefore, holds large loose-leaf collections of vedute of his Saxon homelands.
The German and Austrian art of the Baroque era is present with fresco designs by Cosmas Damian Asam, Matthäus Günther, Paul Troger, Daniel Gran and Franz Anton Maulbertsch.

The scope and depth of the printed art production of the 17th and 18th century is voluminously documented at the Albertina. Typical of its time, the documentation includes a great many graphic reproductions of all the important representatives of this era.
The museum fabulously holds complete sets of the world-famous engravings by Francisco de Goya.
