NEOCLASSICISM AND BIEDERMEIER FROM THE COLLECTIONS OF THE PRINCE OF LIECHTENSTEIN

KLASICISMUS A BIEDERMEIER Z KNÍŽECÍCH LICHTENŠTEJNSKÝCH SBÍREK

The catalogue explores art treasures of the Neoclassical and Biedermeier eras from the rich collections of Hans-Adam II, the reigning Prince of Liechtenstein. Superb portrait, landscape and genre paintings by noted Viennese artists – Heinrich Füger, Friedrich von 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 300 works are included – paintings, sculpture, unique collections of Viennese hand-painted porcelain, architectural plans and furniture. The volume also focuses on the former Liechtenstein estates in Moravia. 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 lifestyle of this aristocratic family.
