Habsburg Splendor:: Masterpieces from Vienna's Imperial Collection
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES  •  High Museum of Art  •  18 October 2015 - 17 January 2016
The exhibition showcases masterpieces and rare objects from the collection of the Habsburg Dynasty – the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire as well as many other superpowers of Europe who commissioned extraordinary artworks now in the collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Habsburg Splendor, largely composed of works that have never traveled outside of Austria, explores the dramatic rise and fall of the Habsburgs' global empire, from their political ascendance in the late Middle Ages to the height of their power in the 16th and 17th centuries, the expansion of the dynasty in the 18th and 19th centuries to its decline in 1918 at the end of World War I. More than 90 artworks and artifacts tell the story, including arms and armor, sculpture, Greek and Roman antiquities, court costumes, carriages, decorative art objects, and paintings by such masters as Correggio, Giorgione, Rubens, Tintoretto, Titian and Velázquez.
