Point of View # 19 is on view now! It showcases the impressive portrait of Martin Marquart, a goldsmith from Augsburg. 👉 The back features a highly unusual composition: in the presence of a weeping Cupid a satyr presents a nude female figure with a necklace, a symbol of love for sale. Both the front and the panel’s back presumably are on display for the very first time and now shine in new splendour following a recent restoration intervention. ✨ The anonymous painter of this unsigned work was believed to be one of the followers of Christoph Amberger. Yet we may assume that he was an artist from the Low Countries who had trained in Italy. The Picture Gallery has been staging Points of View since 2012. These small exhibitions showcase a selected work from the collection, presenting results of recent research and inviting visitors to see it with new eyes.

‘An invisible sun illuminates the scene from a pale blue sky dotted with fair-weather clouds. Jesus and John the Baptist share a toy: it is the cross upon which my son will die. And it is pointed towards me. I try not to think about his fate. Our close triangular relationship will stand the test of time.’ Our new series #ichbinmaria is presenting selected masterpieces from the point of view of the person portrayed—the Virgin Mary. The aim behind this is to show that sympathetic identification with the protagonist was the original purpose of precious votive paintings. 👉 Click the link in our profile to read the whole text and stay tuned for more!

In collaboration with the Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Belvedere is hosting the exhibition ‘Klimt and Antiquity - Erotic Encounters’.

‘My son is lively; he has just learned to stand up and to walk. Right from the beginning, his powers were a mystery to me. I like it when he places his small hand around my neck, when his blonde locks gently brush my face, and when I hear a slight rumbling in his plump belly, though this does not seem to cause him any pain.’ Our new series #ichbinmaria is presenting selected masterpieces from the point of view of the person portrayed—the Virgin Mary. The aim behind this is to show that sympathetic identification with the protagonist was the original purpose of precious votive paintings.

Happy Birthday Rembrandt! 🎉 Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was #bornonthisday in 1606. The artist is famous for his self-portraits and we are happy to have three of them in our Picture Gallery. We decided to share this one, the ‘Small Self-Portrait’, painted around 1657, here on Instagram today. Self-portraits were not common at all back in 17th century Holland. But Rembrandt presented himself to the public and showed various moods in his self-portraits. A most sensitive and courageous artist, don’t you think? What is your favourite painting by Rembrandt? #rembrandt #kunsthistorischesmuseum #vienna #museum #finearts #arthistory
