VIENNA  •  Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien  •  Ongoing
To commemorate the death of the Roman Emperor Augustus 2000 years and of Charlemagne 1200 years ago the Kunsthistorisches Museum is hosting a small presentation of unique masterpieces that illustrate the intellectual world of these two rulers, the splendour of their courts, and their seminal importance for European history. The exhibition showcases two of the museumís most iconic artworks: the Gemma Augustea and the Vienna Coronation Gospels, produced for Charlemagne and now on view for the first time since 1954.
