Happy #RegramFriday everyone! 🙆🎉
Fantastic shot @olya.insideart! Those two masterpieces are on view at our #AlbertinaStateRooms right now but only as facsimiles. The original works can be seen only once in a decade due to their photosensitivity. However, in autumn they will be shown in the exhibition #AlbertinaDürer. So be aware!
For this weekend note that we are opening #RubensToMakart tonight! Just pass by, admission free!

We ❤️ Alexej von Jawlensky's YOUNG GIRL WITH A FLOWERED HAT! 🌹🌸👩 Interesting fact: The portrayed model was called Choco. The girl owed his nickname to a preference for hot chocolate that she used to ask before the sessions in Jawlensky's cold studio. Cute, right? If you wanna experience this girl in reality, it's currently on view at #MonetToPicasso!

May we present one of our most important former inhabitants: Marie Christine 👸, Maria Theresia's daughter, who was married to Albert of Saxony-Teschen. Emperor Franz II donated the palace of today's Albertina to her husband, who had to flee from Brussels as governor of the Austrian Netherlands. The couple then lived in our #AlbertinaStateRooms all their life. Through his appointment as governor, Albert had come to immense wealth and invested the largest part in the graphic collection, which was housed in the palais from 1805. With about 1 million graphics, this one is the largest collection in the world today! 😍

This artwork by Pablo Picasso has a special history: TWO POTS AND A LEMON hides a sketch of the work LES DEMOISELLES D'AVIGNON. 😮 If you turn the picture 90 degrees clockwise, you can see the legs and hips of a crouching woman on the lower right. X-rays prove that this figure once belonged to this multi-figure composition. Interesting side fact, right? 😄

Today we're gonna open our first huge photo exhibition of the year. 📸🙆 The Austrian artist Manfred Willmann shows his series, where he captures scenes from his personal surroundings in Graz and southern Styria, scenes that break with clichés of idyllic rural life. Really remarkable and totally unique is his use of flash as you can see in this photo as well.
👉Join the opening: start: 6.30 pm! If you aren't located in Vienna, join our Facebook live stream!

It seems like Henri Matisse was a #fashionlover! 👗😄Around 1935, a larger series of figure paintings was created, in which not the human beings stood in the the center of consideration but their clothes. As the title already reveals, this is one out of that series. Do you like the dress?
