Vernissage: Angelika Kauffmann: Unknown Treasures from Vorarlberg Private Collections
Anyone who believes to know the works by Angelica Kauffman will be surprised by this new exhibition. Private collectors from Vorarlberg (Austria) show their paintings, drawings and prints by this famous woman artist for the first time. In addition, the curator Bettina Baumgärtel has succeeded in tracking down lost works. High-class loans from public collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London or the Gallery of Paintings in Berlin (SPKB) complete the show. Kauffmann (1741-1807) was already a myth during her lifetime and her works were pathbreaking for the art of Neolassicism. After the first venue in Dessau-Wörlitz in 2018 it can now be seen in the vorarlberg museum in Bregenz and the Angelika Kauffmann Museum in Schwarzenberg.
The invitation to the Vernissage at Bregenz and Schwarzenberg can be found here.
