The Art of Power: Habsburg Women in the Renaissance

Special exhibition, 14th June to 7th October 2018 daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The large-scale special exhibition in summer 2018 at Ambras Castle Innsbruck focuses on three remarkable Renaissance women, rulers and collectors of the House of Habsburg engaged in the arts: Margaret of Austria, Mary of Hungary, and Catherine of Austria. For the first time in an exhibition, not only by the Kunsthistorisches Museum but generally, a comparative analysis of courtly female patronage will be undertaken.

This high-calibre exhibition presents some one hundred works from important European collections, including objects from Ambras Castle, Innsbruck and outstanding pieces from the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna.

This major special exhibition is curated by Dagmar Eichberger and Annemarie Jordan Gschwend and will be accompanied by a catalogue in German/English.
