27 June-17 Sept 2006. The Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum presents an exhibition of sculptures by Flemish artist Jean Boulogne, (1529-1608) who rose to fame at the court of the Medici in Florence under the name of Giambologna. One of the most important sculptors in European art history, Giambologna broke away from the influence of Michelangelo in striving for the ideal image of man. The exhibition, which includes life-size sculptures in marble and bronze as well as recently authenticated smaller bronze figures plus wax and terracotta models, has been put together in collaboration with the Florences museum of sculpture, the Museo Nationale del Bargello, with loans from European and American private collectors. Many of the exhibits are on display in Austria for the first time. Admission 10 concessions 7.50. Tues-Sun 10.00-18.00, Thurs 10.00-21.00.
