Architectural Master Drawings from the Albertina
Museum for Architectural Drawing, Berlin, 12 March – 10 July 2016
The wonderful graphic collection of Vienna’s renowned museum, the Albertina, ranks as one of the most important worldwide. It covers more than 50,000 hand drawn drawings and 900,000 printed graphics ranging from the late gothic period to the contemporary, including works by Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raffael, Albrecht Dürer, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt, Manet and Picasso.
The Albertina’s architectural collection is no less important, including more than 35,000 works by acclaimed architects from the 16th century up to the present day. The exhibition at the Museum for Architectural Drawing offers an insight into this magnificent collection through a broad spectrum of hand drawn architecture: sketches, drafts, vedute and projects of renowned artists such as Antonio Pisanello, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Francesco Borromini, Hubert Robert, Adolf Loos, Egon Schiele, Frank Lloyd Wright, Hans Hollein and Zaha Hadid.
