From Monet to Picasso – The Batliner Collection

The most famous museum in the capital of Austria, Vienna is admittedly the Albertina Museum, where better and better temporary and permanent exhibitions welcome visitors. Unusually the Monet to Picasso fantasy named exhibition is seeable out of the Albertina between 20 September 2013 and 10 December 2013; one half is available at the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, the other half is loaned to Eremitage St. Petersburg.

Naturally the two great artists’ masterpieces are not the only what we can see on the exhibition, there are other monumental painters’ works between the exhibited objects. Art lovers can see for example Renoir’s, Cézanne’s, Modigliani’s, Matisse’s, Kirchner’s and other incredibly talented painters’ works too.

The collection got its name after the collectors, Herbert and Rita Batliner. Batliners started collecting around half hundred years ago. The couple fell in love with French artists’ works during collecting, the most frequent pieces are Pablo Picasso’s masterpieces; the Batliner Collection contains around 40 Picasso works. Batliners often loaned the rich collection to different museums, and a few years ago they have decided to present the whole collection to the Albertina Museum.

The Batliner Collection, what is visiting now the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein and the Eremitage St. Petersburg between 20 September 2013 and 10 December 2013 is totally worth to see, when you are in Vienna at the same time.
