21er Haus

The 21er Haus is to be understood as a place of artistic production, reception, and reflection. The focus is on Austrian art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and its embedding in an international context. The Belvedere’s holdings, which will be given a permanent presence in a specially designated part of the building, will serve as a basis for research and exhibition activities. Relying on the Belvedere’s collection as a starting point, the programme, with its various formats, is meant to build a bridge between the museum’s modern architecture and contemporary art, thereby pursuing multidisciplinary and socially analytical approaches. Thematically focused temporary displays and corresponding monographic positions will concentrate on the numerous and ever more significant interrelationships among artists.

Essl Museum - Kunst der Gegenwart

With its 6,000 exhibits the Essl Collection today offers an excellent overview of Austrian painting since 1945, placing it in an international context. Whenever possible the collectors acquired a number of works by those artists that were of decisive importance for Austrian art. Collecting in depth was always an essential idea and the artists’ development in the course of their oeuvre was to be shown.

Kunsthistorisches Museum

The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna numbers among the most important European museum buildings put up during the 19th century. The monumental structure, built at the behest of Emperor Franz Joseph I as part of his expansion of the city in 1858, was intended to both unite and appropriately represent the artistic treasures that had been collected by the Habsburgs over the centuries. Construction work lasted 20 years, from when ground was first broken in 1871 to the museum building’s completion in the year 1891.

The Leopold Museum houses the world’s largest Egon Schiele collection and thus offers a unique overview of the work of this great painter and most significant graphic artist of Austrian Expressionism. The vanguard of modernist painting in Austria is also represented by an extensive selection of works by Gustav Klimt, the most extraordinary artistic personality of the Secession.

Osterreichische Galerie Belvedere

The Belvedere’s two magnificent palaces, the Upper and Lower Belvedere, were built in the 18th century as the summer residence for the important general Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736). He chose one of the most outstanding Baroque architects Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt (1668-1745). The palaces with their extensive gardens are considered to be one of the world’s finest Baroque landmarks. Momentous events have taken place in the Upper Belvedere’s Marble Hall and from here there is a spectacular view of Vienna.

Residenzgalerie

The Residenzgalerie was opened in 1923. Founded in the time following immediately upon the end of the monarchy, it was intended to fulfil various functions: to replace the art collection of the prince-archbishops, which had been lost in the turmoil of the Napoleonic wars in the early 19th century, to serve as a collection for study purposes in the planned (but never realised) academy of art, and not least to boost tourism by offering another cultural attraction besides the Salzburg Festival. After being reopened on 3 August 1952, the Residenzgalerie’s focus soon shifted to the collection of 16th to 19th-century paintings. The Residenzgalerie Salzburg handed over its complete stock of 20th-century art, limiting its collection activities to works created in Europe between the 16th and the end of the 19th century.
