Today many of these works reside in the Albertina Museum in Vienna, and they are featured in this elegant volume. In addition to works by Dürer, the book includes reproductions of the extraordinary Triumphal Procession of Albrecht Altdorfer and his workshop, and the monumental woodcut Triumphal Arch. This book explores the artistic culture of Maximilian's era, with numerous examples from the Albertina's own collection as well as painted portraits, exquisite illuminated manuscripts, precious sculptures and splendid tapestries from some of the world's leading museums. Brought together in this elegant volume, these works offer valuable insight into Maximilian's public relations "machinery." Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (14.9.2012-6.1.2013)."@en
