Palace Stables

Medieval Treasury Study Collection

The Palace Stables, once home to the prince’s horses, were adapted into a study collection by Berlin architect Kuehn Malvezzi in 2007. This complements the permanent displays of Gothic masterpieces at the Upper Belvedere with the result that, except for a few objects that cannot be exhibited, the entire collection is on show. The study collection comprises approximately 150 works, ranging from a Romanesque crucifix to Late Gothic panel paintings and sculptures, and even including an altarpiece that reveals the forms of the Renaissance. There are works by prominent masters, such as Friedrich Pacher, and many by anonymous painters and sculptors. At the Palace Stables, study exhibitions are regularly staged that focus on a single object or ensemble and revolve around the museum’s core roles of conservation and research. The series Currently Restored showcases works from the Belvedere’s collection and has included the Vienna Christmas Relief from Hans Klocker’s workshop, the Late Gothic sculptures Virgin and Child with Saint Anne by the Master of Heiligenblut, the Abtenau Altarpiece by Andreas Lackner, and the Fragment of the Lenten Veil by Thomas of Villach.
