Permanent Loans in the Princely Collections
Complementing our own holdings, loans of the very highest quality enrich the permanent presentations at the Summer and City Palaces in Vienna, are shown as part of the Princely Collections’ thematic exhibitions and are regularly requested as loans and placed at the disposal of major international museums.
The Hohenbuchau Collection has been at the disposal of the Princely Collections as a permanent loan since 2010. Its holdings mainly comprise works of Flemish and Dutch Mannerism and the Baroque that have been assembled in recent years by Otto Christian Faßbender and his wife Renate. The name of the collection derives from a residence once owned by the family. The Hohenbuchau Collection is displayed in its entirety between the LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM in Vienna, the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart, the Bruce Collection in Greenwich, the Cincinnati Art Museum and Fort Bard in Italy.
Fürstlich Schwarzenberg'sche Familienstiftung Vaduz
Since 2006 paintings from the Fürstlich Schwarzenberg’sche Familienstiftung have been curated by the Princely Collections as permanent loans. Among these, “Ganymede” by Peter Paul Rubens is the most important work on display as part of the permanent presentation at the Liechtenstein Summer Palace.
Since 2004 the most important still extant aristocratic collection held in Vienna has been curated by the Princely Collections as a permanent loan. Alongside superb paintings by artists such as Pietro Cortona, Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Brueghel the Younger and Giovanni Francesco Barbieri, called Guercino, the holdings also include precious sculptures, furniture, hunting guns and other applied arts objects.
Further permanent loans
In addition to these three major groups of works, the Princely Collections also have important individual works from private Viennese collections at their disposal as permanent loans.
