9 Jun 2009 - 11 Oct 2009. Considered to be one of Austria's most famous painters, Ferdinand Georg Waldmuller (1793-1865) was a significant figure from the Biedermeier period and was noted for his lifelike depiction of nature and landscapes. He was also a respected portrait artist and in 1823 he painted the ailing Ludwig van Beethoven. For the first time in two decades, Austria will honour Waldmuller with a retrospective exhibition at the Belvedere, which is already home to the world's largest collection of Waldmuller works. Paintings on loan from international art collectors, combined with many pieces long believed to have been lost, make this an exhibition not to be missed.
