This exhibition offers the Czech public and visitors to Prague a first-time opportunity to view art treasures of the Neoclassical and Biedermeier eras, from the rich collections of Hans-Adam II, the reigning Prince of Liechtenstein, accompanied by loans from state-owned Moravian chateaus. Superb portrait, landscape and genre paintings by noted Viennese artists — Heinrich Füger, Friedrich Amerling, Peter Fendi and Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller — attest to the role of the Princely Family as a leading patron, commissioner and collector of the arts. More than 260 works are showcased — paintings, sculpture, unique collections of Viennese hand-painted porcelain, architectural plans and furniture. The Prague exhibition also focuses on the former Liechtenstein estates in Moravia: the vedute, water-colour paintings of interiors and furniture, especially from the Liechtensteins’ country seats at Valtice and Lednice, provide an in-depth look at the life-style of this aristocratic family.

The exhibition is held under the patronage of Hans-Adam II, Prince of Liechtenstein, and Jan Fischer, Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, and Přemysl Sobotka, President of the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic.

Organized by the LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM Wien in partnership with the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, The South Moravian Region and Austrian Cultural Forum Prague. The exhibition is held on the occasion of the renewal of diplomatic relations between the Principality of Liechtenstein and the Czech Republic.
