Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen and his wife, Archduchess Marie Christine, laid the foundations in 1776 to the prestigious graphics collection named after Albert. It was unusual for its time in terms of their appreciation for both drawings and prints which they considered as equals to paintings. Against prevailing collecting conventions and traditional genre hierarchies, the Duke and Duchess also maintained the greatest interest for contemporary art. On account of his desire for an encyclopedic completeness to the collection, Albert gave promise to a promotion of contemporary artists. For the first time this volume of essays shows fully the eventful life of the founder of the Albertina and the tension between absolutism, revolution, and the Congress of Vienna

Herzog Albert von Sachsen-Teschen und seine Gemahlin Erzherzogin Marie Christine legten im Jahr 1776 den bis heute tragenden Grundstein der renommierten und heute nach Albert benannten Grafiksammlung. Ungewöhnlich für die damalige Zeit war die Wertschätzung des Paars von Zeichnungen und Drucken, die sie Gemälden als ebenbürtig erachteten. Gegen vorherrschende Sammlungskonventionen und traditionelle Gattungshierarchien pflegte das Herzogspaar auch größtes Interesse für die Kunst ihrer Gegenwart. Von der angestrebten enzyklopädischen Vollständigkeit der Sammlung versprach sich Albert eine Förderung zeitgenössischer Künstler. Der Aufsatzband zeigt das wechselvolle Leben der Gründer der Albertina im Spannungsfeld von Absolutismus, Revolution und Wiener Kongress erstmals umfassend auf.0Exhibition: Albertina, Wien, Austria (12.3.-29.6.2014)
