February 16 - April 01 | Liechtenstein GARDEN PALACE
HERCULES OF THE ARTS
Johann Adam Andreas I von Liechtenstein and Vienna around 1700
With two magnificent edifices, the GARDEN PALACE in the Rossau quarter and the CITY PALACE near the Hofburg, Prince Johann Adam Andreas I von Liechtenstein created imposing monuments for himself. His rank among the foremost patrons of his time was assured not only as an ambitious commissioner of architectural projects who also drove the growth of a new urban quarter, but also as a fervent collector of art.
It was above all the magnificent paintings by Peter Paul Rubens that drew the admiration of contemporaries during the prince’s lifetime. The exhibition provides a vivid picture of both the lively exchange between patron and artists, and an insight into the circumstances of collecting and dynastic governance in Vienna as the city prospered around 1700.
