150 Years Friendship Austria-Japan - The Habsburg Dynasty: 600 Years of Imperial Collections
This event has ended.
Making the most of their wealth and networks, the Habsburgs are also known for having established some of the world’s leading collections, both quality, and quantity-wise. Among them, the major items collected by the mainstream House of Habsburg continuously based in Austria formed the base of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien founded in 1891 under the auspices of Francis Joseph I, the last emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Austria and Japan, with the cooperation of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, this exhibition introduces the collection through altogether 100 paintings, prints, works of art, tapestries, and armor in five chapters-seven sections.
