Rembrandt – Titian – Bellotto: Spirit and Splendour of the Dresden Picture Gallery at the Winter Palace
VIENNA • Österreichische Galerie Belvedere • 11 June - 8 November 2015
|The exhibition Rembrandt – Titian – Bellotto: Spirit and Splendour of the Dresden Picture Gallery at the Winter Palace showcases approximately one hundred masterpieces by famous artists including Rembrandt, Titian, Bernardo Bellotto, Guido Reni, Anthony van Dyck, and Antoine Watteau. The foundation and development of the Dresden Gemäldegalerie [Picture Gallery] in the eighteenth century will be divided into seven chapters, tracing its evolution into a centre of education and exchange between artists and art historians. Important history paintings, landscapes, still lifes, and portraits clearly convey the prestige of this royal collection. And they also shed light on the collecting practices of the electors of Saxony and kings of Poland, Augustus II, called “the Strong”, and his son Augustus III. Their reigns marked an economic and cultural heyday that has been dubbed the Augustan Age, a time when many buildings and the royal collections demonstrated the new power of the Dresden court. Dresden’s Picture Gallery dates back to the days of Augustus the Strong.|
The Belvedere is showing the exhibition Rembrandt – Titian – Bellotto: Spirit and Splendour of the Dresden Picture Gallery at the Winter Palace of Prince Eugene, who was amassing his treasures from many different countries at the same time as Augustus II and Augustus III. The exhibition therefore transforms the Winter Palace into an encounter between international art connoisseurs from the Baroque period.
