Art Gallery - Albertina Museum Vienna: The Batliner Collection - Sculptures

                    Footsteps - Jotaro's Travels                        
Albertina Museum Vienna: The Batliner Collection Sculptures
September 2015
The Danaide, Grand Model - Auguste Rodin
The Batliner Collection (in German - die Sammlung Batliner) of the Albertina Museum displays one of the largest collection of classical and modernist paintings and other artwork. There are around 500 exhibits on permanent loan from Rita and Herbert Batliner who had collected them from the beginning of the 1960's. The Batliner Collection includes paintings from various masters such as Picasso and Monet.
Due to photography angle and shadow, I had cropped some of the photos; so some of the photo may not show the full painting. It's best to go to the museum and view the paintings to fully appreciate them.

As the Batliner Collection is rather large, I have separated them into several blogs. Below are sculptures by some notable artists from various countries, click on the respective photos below for enlarged view:
