Incomparable masterpieces of Netherlandish drawing from the collection of Vienna’s Albertina

The entire artistic spectrum is opened up page by page: landscapes, seascapes, topographical views, portraits, rural genre scenes, and still lifes

The Albertina owns one of the world’s most important collections of Netherlandish drawings dating from the period 1430 to 1650, including outstanding individual specimens from the circles around Jan van Eyck, Petrus Christus, or Dirk Bouts. Works by Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Brueghel the Elder form one of the first highlights of this select collection. The rest of the sixteenth century is exemplified by masterful drawings by artists such as Jan Gossaert, Maarten van Heemskerck, and Hendrick Goltzius. The focus of the collection, however, is Holland’s “Golden Age,” the seventeenth century, with important works by Rembrandt van Rijn and his school. The southern Netherlands, once dominated by the House of Hapsburg, is represented by the most famous Flemish masters of the age: Peter Paul Rubens, Anton van Dyck, and Jacob Jordaens.
