    In this part of Vienna, fiakers are seen all the time. Lines of coaches, in front of the points, interesting for tourist, are waiting for clients. Always is found somebody, tired, with painful legs, or just to ride in coach.

    Address: The winter palace of the emperor

    The Albertina

    The Albertina houses three very cool collections, all of different art formats. They are namely:

    the Graphic Collection, one of the world's largest at over 70,000 drawings and more than 1 million graphi prints from significant art eras spanning the late Gothic period to the contemporary. Works include those from Leonardo, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Albert Durer, Rubens, Cezanne, Klimt, Schiele, etc.

    the Photographic Collection consists of studio photography, early colour photography, pictorial works and examples of scientific photography. Another important part of this archive is the collection of the Langwiesche publishing house, famous for its picture books, emphasising on subject photography from the 1920’s and 30’s. The collection also documents the origins of photography up until today, focusing especially on American photography of the 1960’s and 70’s.

    the Architecture Collection, comprises almost 25,000 drafts, sketches and models. These are from the estates of renowned architects such as Adolf Loos, Francesco Borromini, Otto Wagner, Le Corbusier and many more.

    In April 2004, they were having the Rembrandt Retrospective which I was fortunate enough to catch. The exhibitions combines 80 drawings and 70 etchings with 30 of Rembrandt's paintings. There were many self-portraits, figure studies, nudes, religious interpretations and landscapes, amongst others, from all creative periods of Rembrandt.

    Upcoming exhibitions in 2005 includes those exhibiting works by Piet Mondrian and Paul Klee.

    HOURS:
    Open daily from 10am - 6pm, except Wednesday from 10am - 9pm.

    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.

    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.

    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...
