Emperor Maximilian I and the Art of his Time

14 September - 6 January 2013. The Albertina celebrates art produced under the rule of the mediaeval emperor Maximilian I, once referred to by historians as the "Last Night".

Maximilian commissioned many of the works currently on show in Vienna from leading artists of the day such as German painters Albrecht Dürer and Albrecht Altdorfer.

The exhibition examines the influence and contribution Maximilian made to the art world, with many of the works on display coming from the Albertina's collection while other paintings are on loan from major international museums.

During his reign as Holy Roman Emperor, Maximilian set about creating a revival of chivalry and knight-associated activities such as jousting tournaments throughout Europe.
