Founded in 1776 by Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen, a son-in-law of Empress Maria Theresa, the collection comprises over one million prints and 60,000 drawings.

Famous prints such as Dürer's "Field Hare" and his "Hands Folded in Prayer," Rubens' studies of children, and masterpieces by Schiele, Cézanne, Klimt, Kokoschka, Picasso and Rauschenberg are shown in temporary exhibitions.

Permanent exhibitions

The Albertina's new permanent collection presents the most exciting art movements of the last 130 years: from French Impressionism to German Expressionism to the Russian avant-garde to the present. Monet's "Water Lily Pond," Degas' "Dancers," and Renoir's "Portrait of a Girl" can be admired, as can paintings by Beckmann, Macke, Chagall, Malevich, Rothko, Rainer, and Katz.

In addition, the Albertina owns an architecture collection and a newly founded photography collection (including Helmut Newton, Lisette Model), whose works are shown in special exhibitions.
