Habsburg Treasures

by: Sabine Haag, Franz Kirschweger
Ten years after the tragic theft of Benvenuto Cellini’s masterpiece, a gold and enamel saltcellar, Vienna’s Kunstkammer (Art Room) at the Kunsthistorisches Museum has reopened. Completely renovated, the gallery is once again showcasing the Habsburg dynasty’s exceptional collection of art and wonders. Here is a trove of sculptures and bronzes by such giants as Donatello and Giambologna, the world’s greatest collection of Baroque carved-ivory figures, and glorious Baroque silver goblets and vessels, as well as magically endowed natural wonders, such as ostrich eggs mounted in jewels, gold, and silver gilt.

Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna's Imperial Collections at the Kunsthistorisches Museum

This beautiful book tells the fascinating story of the Habsburg dynasty, which ruled most of central Europe, Spain, Belgium, and parts of Italy for nearly 600 years, from the 15th through the 20th century. Charles V (1500–1558) once remarked that the sun never set on the Habsburg Empire, and for most of its history, Vienna served as its capital. The Habsburgs were acclaimed collectors and generous patrons of the arts. Franz Joseph I (1830–1916), the penultimate emperor of the dynasty, created the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna to house the artistic treasures of the empire.

The creativity of artistic production during the Middle Kingdom is vast and highly appreciated, but still far from fully understood.

The studies presented in this volume aim to present this extraordinary output of two and three-dimensional artworks in a critical reevaluation of old ideas and convictions while advancing new methods and exchanging ideas.

The core of “Change and Innovation” is looking at traditions, seeking answers to changes, and hoping to provide a better understanding of the concept of the salient characteristics of Middle Kingdom art.
