HOHENBUCHAU COLLECTION
The Hohenbuchau Collection, a private collection of 98 masterpieces of Dutch, Flemish, German, Italian and Spanish painting, was accepted as a permanent loan by the LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM in December 2007.
The main focus of the collection is on the painting of the 17th century – above all the Dutch and Flemish Baroque, the period known as the Golden Age. The collection endeavours to show this particular epoch and its schools in all its glorious diversity, from the multiplicity of its pictorial genres, ranging from history painting, portraits, genre paintings, landscapes to still lifes, as well as the widest possible variety within each genre. In this respect it is interesting that it was not only cabinet paintings that were collected – as is so often the case in modern private collections – but also paintings uted in large-scale and in some cases even monumental formats.

Important synergy effects are being generated between the Princely Collections and the Hohenbuchau Collection from now on be administered by the LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM both collections complete and complement each other perfectly, as demonstrated by the example of the Caravaggist paintings.

From February 2008 works of this collections are on show as parts of the special exhibitions as well as the permanent exhibition of the LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM, it is planned to present the Hohenbuchau Collection in its entirety at the LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM in Vienna in May 2011.
