The Batliner Collection

Everything

Paul Signac | Venice, The Pink Cloud, 1909 | The ALBERTINA Museum, Vienna – The Batliner Collection

Date and time

1/07/202031/12/2021

The ALBERTINA Museum’s permanent collection has been completely restructured. The Albertina houses one of Europe’s most important compilations of Modernist art in the form of the Batliner Collection.
Its exhibition starts off with such artists of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism as Degas, Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Gauguin. Further highlights include examples of German Expressionism, with the groups of Brücke and Der Blaue Reiter, and the art of New Objectivity, with works by Wacker, Sedlacek, and Hofer. An in-depth focus on Austrian art comprises works by Kokoschka and paintings by Egger-Lienz. The great diversity of the Russian avant-garde is represented by paintings by Goncharova, Malevich, and Chagall.

The ALBERTINA Museum welcomes the Othmar Huber Collection for an appearance as part of the permanent presentation. A selection of 15 works from the collection of Swiss ophthalmologist Othmar Huber (1892-1979) is being presented, giving rise to a dialogue between these two outstanding accumulations of classical modernist art.

The focus of this encounter between key modernist masterpieces is on German Expressionism as well as the early Bauhaus movement with works by Marc, Macke, Wassily and Klee. Furthermore, two important paintings by Picasso—the Sleeping Drinker (1902) and Head of a Woman (1963), presented together with the ALBERTINA Museum’s own rich Picasso holdings—round out this special guest appearance. The exhibited works are on loan from the Othmar Huber Foundation, kept at Kunstmuseum Bern, and the Kunsthaus Glarus.
