City, Country, River – 5 pictures you should not miss
It is easy for us to record a beautiful landscape using our smartphone. Earlier, when artists produced studies of nature that they then completed in their studios, this was more complicated.
In its exhibition “Stadt und Land. Zwischen Traum & Realität” (City and Landscape: Between Dream and Reality), the Albertina invites visitors to take a stroll that is full of contrasts with the help of 170 landscape paintings from five centuries – all from its own collection. Some of these are highly realistic, others fictitious. And the works on show also demonstrate how the world and people’s lives have changed over time. Here, Assistant Curator Constanze Malissa presents five works that you certainly should not miss.
