Another interesting place to visit in Vienna,is The Albertina Museum,is located at Albertina Square,just behind the Opera House.
This museum is placed in a huge building made of several diferent parts.Here you can see about 60.000 drawings and near one million engravings,and numerous portraits and nudes by Egon Schiele and sketches by Gustav Klimt.
Albertina Museum is very central.
The subjects are varied.
The day I went 3 vastly differing items wes displayed in different floors.
Michalengo on one.
A japanese Photographer I prefer to forget on another and Pop Art on the lowest level.
The Habsburgische Apartments take you to an age of oppulance.
Prints exposed are from: Albrecht Duerer, Egon Schiele, Jakob Alt, Gustav Klimt. Monet, Rudolf von Alt. Paul Cezanne, Eduard Manet.
This is the palace which contains a wide range of collection of graphic arts.
Oliver have a friend who work here & it was a funny experience. His friend brought us in on the pretext of temps... hehe, I think it's Oliver who joked about it. We couldn't be working here... we are not dressed like staff!
It has been believed that Albertina has the largest collections of graphic art in the world.
Thousands of people just travel to Vienna just to see these valuable collection.
I am not very interested in that type of art but I still found it very attractive. I stayed there for two hours and enjoyed every minute of it.
The palace, hidden away in a corner of the Hofburg, was owned by Maria Christina and her husband Duke Albert of Sachsen-Teschen (hence its name). She was Maria Theresa's daughter. It is now a gallery with a marvellous collection of prints, watercolours and dawings. There are some wonderful ones by Durer but of course my favourite artists are represented as well - Michelangelo and Rubens.
Albertina is located in the baroque Palais Taroucca. The Palais was remodeled in 19th century for Maria Teresia's son-in-law, Duke Albert von Sachen-Teschen.
Alberina has the biggest collection of grafic works.
VTer socrates_07 loves to visit art galleries - it can also be interesting if you have the time to appreciate the works. They were featuring Munch - who is a famous Norwegian artist, much appreciated by the Austrians as well.
He was the forefather of expressionist art....worthy to take note was the faces, especially the eyes and mouths expression. Some are pretty scary - but my favourite is the less famous Kiss which features no faces at all but in total passionate embrace
They don't call Vienna the city of museums for nothing. This is probably the most famous art museum in the city. While there, I got to see an exhibit of Edward Muensch...this exhibit included his most famous work The Scream....suffice to say the Edward had some major issues...
i didnt go into the museum but rather i spent my time at level 2 which has free nice view of the surrounding.
Albertina is museum that with huge collection of graphic arts. It has gone through large renovation and was reopened in March, 2003.
Albertina house is a must visit for art lovers. It houses the worldýs largest collection of graphic art. Works of Durer, Rubens, Michelangelo and Leonardo da vinci is included in the collection
The Albertina, very near the Opera House, was a great Art Museum. They also get excellent touring exhibits, so check their website to find out what will be showing when you visit.
Albertina is in the centre of the city next to the Opera house. It is one of the biggest museums and art collections exhibits in Vienna. When I was here they have Michelangelo exhibition.
