Masterpieces of Modern Art
The Permanent Collection of the Albertina and the Baitliner Collection
Some 100 works now displayed in a permanent exhibition trace the historical progression from Impressionism to Modernism. The artists range from the French masters Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Paul Cézanne, to Pablo Picasso. Important works by Abstract Expressionists Mark Rothko and Sam Francis lead to the second half of the 20th century presenting Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer, Gottfried Helnwein and others.
DIE SAMMLUNG BATLINER
Die Sammlung von Rita und Herbert Batliner ist eine der bedeutendsten europäischen Privatsammlungen zur Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die in ihr vereinten Kunstwerke illustrieren eines der spannendsten Kapitel in der Kunstgeschichte: die Entwicklung von der figurativen zur abstrakten Malerei.
