The Paintings Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna has moved to its guest location at the Theatermuseum’s Palais Lobkowitz. For around three years while the Academy building on Schillerplatz is extensively renovated. This new venue offers a chance to re-discover the collection and, in particular, to view the world-famous heart of the Paintings Gallery, Hieronymus Bosch’s (c. 1450/55–1516) Last Judgment triptych, in a new setting. One of the major works by this renowned Netherlandish painter, the Last Judgment attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year.
Since November 2017, the public collection can be seen in a new hang in the baroque Palais. Together with the highlight of Hieronymus Bosch’s Last Judgment, the display includes major paintings by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Botticelli, Titian, Rubens and Van Dyck as well as Rembrandt and leading figures from Dutch Golden Age painting. Eighteenth-century Italian painting is represented by Tiepolo and Guardi, and late Baroque and Viennese neo-classicism by Lampi and Füger.
