Albertina Museum retains its Imperial apartments done in Baroque style and showing the largest collection of Albrecht Durer’s art as well as pieces from other famous Renaissance artists. But it's new expansion wing also displays a good modern art collection and features exhibitions also mainly modern artists.Recommended for:
From French impressionism to German expressionism to the Russian avant garde and the present. Monet's "Water Lily Pond", Degas' "Dancers" and Renoir's "Girl" can be gazed at in wonder, as can paintings by Beckmann, Macke, Chagall, Malevich, Rothko, Rainer and Katz. In a spectacular building!
Perhaps it was the Benadryll and two advils that I'd downed in response to being feverishly ill right before visiting the museum, but I found that visiting the Albertina was the highlight of my 3 day trip to Vienna. From Picasso's morbid and political masterpieces to the classic Michelangelos, all to the tune of some mellow mood electro music while feeling extremely loopy off the meds...the art in the museum really spoke to me. Now granted I've never visited Italy of France so this place may seem underwhelming to some of you travel buffs but I personally really enjoyed my time at the Albertina.
