One of the world’s foremost collections of Old Masters is paying a visit to Vienna: fourteen masterpieces from the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg will enter into a dialogue with great paintings from the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna.

On show are, for example, works by Botticelli, Tintoretto, Rembrandt and van Dyck.

The representative selection of masterpieces from these two great collections offers a concise overview of European painting from the Renaissance to early Neoclassicism, and documents how effortlessly these paired paintings united by a common European cultural region communicate with each other.
