BERLIN.- The latest temporary exhibition in the Museum for Architectural Drawing in Berlin presents masterly architectural drawings from the Albertina’s collection in Vienna.
The Albertina is one of the most prominent collections of the world with over one million works covering six centuries of art history, from the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the present day. Its world famous Graphic Collection, rich in tradition, is by far the largest and most important department bringing together a wealth of masterworks by Albrecht Dürer, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffael, Michelangelo, Rembrandt and Peter Paul Rubens right up to Andy Warhol, Anselm Kiefer, Alex Katz, Georg Baselitz and Gerhard Richter.
The Architecture Collection of the Albertina is by no means less significant. It too spans across many periods, encompassing works by well-known architects. The exhibition in the Berlin Museum for Architectural Drawing allows a glimpse into this fantastic collection, showing hand drawn architecture across a wide spectrum with sketches, studies, vedute and project presentations by exceptional artists and architects such as Antonio Pisanello (1395– 1455), Francesco Borromini (1599–1667), Hubert Robert (1733–1808), Egon Schiele (1890– 1918), Hans Hollein (1934–2014) and Zaha Hadid (née 1950).
