For a few weeks, the ALBERTINA Museum will make it possible for its visitors to cast their eyes on an archive of dreams. The Musée d’Orsay will unlock its vaults during spring  2015 and surrender 130 precious gems of its graphic art to the gaze of the general public in Vienna. Pastels by Edgar Degas, Georges Seurat and Odilon Redon; gouaches by Honoré Daumier and Gustave Moreau; watercolors by Paul Cézanne, along with works by the salon artists who were held in high regard at the time.

Leading the way through a seemingly inscrutable labyrinth of styles, themes and motifs that collectively held the 19th century art world enthralled is Werner Spies, the former Director of the Musée national d’art moderne at the Centre Pompidou. He put together the show for the ALBERTINA Museum.
