Drawings & Prints

The Graphic Art Collection of the ALBERTINA Museum offers a truly panoramic survey of art: founded in 1776 by Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen, this collection now contains over one million drawings and prints from the late Gothic to the present. From Michelangelo and Dürer to Rembrandt and Rubens, and from Klimt and Schiele to Picasso on to Richter and Lassnig, the ALBERTINA Museum’s collection affords a rich overview of 600 years of art history.

Due to their light-sensitivity, the museum’s masterpieces cannot be put on permanent display. For this reason, we show you these works in accordance with strict conservation standards as part of our special exhibitions.
