150409: Gemäldegalerie der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien: Heaven & Hell – The early panel paintings in the Paintings Gallery

Gemäldegalerie der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien: Heaven & Hell – The early panel paintings in the Paintings Gallery See - the good is so close Go there and take a look Another Viennese museum is showing 40 Gothic and Renaissance panel paintings, but with a different focus: the Paintings Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts presents a superstar with Hieronymus Bosch’s “Last Judgement” . A large part of the Paintings Gallery will remain closed until spring of 2010. But there is a fine exhibition on the Bosch-Triptych focusing on the topic “Heaven & Hell”, and presenting the different styles used by Old Dutch, German, and Italian schools of art. Works, which were created during the same era, could not be more divergent if you compare Antonio da Fabriano’s “Coronation of Mary” (1452 – replica of Gentile da Fabriano) and Dierk Bouts (1450) work on the same topic. While the Tuscan Maria is painted on a golden background, in Gothic tradition, the colour of the heavenly Jerusalem, the younger (!) painting from the North, is clearly divided into an inner and outer space and emphasizes the materiality of objects. However, one aspect that is not applied yet is the vanishing point. Hans Baldung Grien’s “Rest on the flight to Egypt” is, of course, also shown at the exhibit. Among the profane paintings one can find Lucas Cranach the Elder’s “Lucretia”, and “Queen Tomryi’s with the Head of Cyrus” by Michael Coxie. The new exhibition level The exhibition space on the first floor is currently being refurbished. A media room, a foyer that will join the two new rooms with the gallery, an elevator, a shop and a cloakroom will be installed, and the paintings and etchings will be relocated underground. Director Schmidt-Wulffen’s concept includes the transformation of the Paintings Gallery into a museum offering lectures.
