Something's in the making 💥🔨⚙️
Our upcoming exhibition MY GENERATION. THE JABLONKA COLLECTION is being installed currently. Visit 110 selected masterpieces of the #JablonkaCollection from 2 October at the ALBERTINA MUSEUM. Enjoy the Making-Of with our stories in the meantime ❤️
💫Here’s a first ambassador of our upcoming exhibition MY GENERATION. THE JABLONKA COLLECTION!💫

❤ MY GENERATION will focus on the art stars of the 1980s, brought together by the one and only #RafaelJablonka. For the first time the art dealer, gallerist and curator will provide insights into his contemporary art collection at the #AlbertinaMuseum with a focus on artists of his own generation. After he closed his Cologne gallery in 2017, he turned over his major private collection to our museum in 2019.
🖼 About 110 selected works on two exhibition levels will present a representative view of these artists’ respective oeuvres in keeping with a one-artist-per-room concept: paintings, sculptures, and works on paper thus enabling visitors to experience the broad diversity all of the Jablonka Collection.

👉🏿👉🏽👉🏻 Discover Sherrie Levine‘s FOUNTAIN (BUDDHA) from 2 October on at the ALBERTINA MUSEUM. Get your tickets online with the link in our bio!

❤️ #ALBERTINAmodern - The Beginning ❤️
Today we are taking a look at Pop Art made in Austria! 

This art revolves around the preferences of the broad masses: shrill colors, hard contours, and two-dimensional representations are the order of the day - an aesthetic reminiscent of advertisements and eye-catching neon signs in large cities in the 1960s, a period of economic prosperity.
🤔 But in fact, the quotations of kitsch, children's illustrations and advertising subjects by Peter Pongratz as well as by his colleagues Attersee, Klemmer, Kogelnik, Pluhar and Lettner are deeply ambiguous.
🖼 Pop Art combines High Art with Low Art: Artists like to use the methodology of graphics and design - their art tends towards branding, star cult and icon building. Peter Pongratz disparages the devotional pictures of his childhood by enlarging them into monumental history paintings. And so we look at a religious picture that seems to be very familiar to us. But it also seems a bit too poppy in its coloring and a bit too flat in its composition to be taken seriously as a devotional picture.

❓❔❓ What do you think about Pongratz' GUARDIAN ANGEL? Leave your opinion in the comments - discover the original in the #ALBERTINamodern!

📆 Discover these icons of contemporary art at our exhibition from 2 October at the ALBERTINA MUSEUM!
🥳 Today we present you four spectacular objects that we acquired in the course of the past year! 🥳
⚜️ Our director Klaus Albrecht Schröder has been committed to the revitalization of the Habsburg state rooms for around 20 years. This includes the renovation and restoration of the historical original substance as well as the repurchase of the magnificent palace furnishings (swipe for all objects).
🎉 Among last year's acquisitions are a unique table clock from Duke Albert's Brussels Laeken Palace, a mirrored corner etagere with bronze Doré applications from the Viennese manufactory of Joseph Danhauser and a portrait bust of Archduke Carl in white Carara marble by Joseph Klieber.
🖼 After over a year of restoration, an important work by Johann Evangelist Scheffer von Leonhartshoff is now also on display in Archduke Carl's study. The painter, who died at an early age, is a member of the Nazarene movement, which draws on the early Raphael. ALBERTINA-founder Albert von Sachsen-Teschen was a great supporter of this movement, therefore this copy of Madonna in the Green (ca. 1815/1820) by Raphael was in his collection.

🏦 All objects await you at the #AlbertinaStateRooms and look forward to your visit!
May your Monday be as relaxed as our Matisse 💙💛🧡⁠
If not, you can visit his Odalisque at #VanGoghCezanneMatisse 😉⁠
