Rare art jewels to go public at Palais Liechtenstein

Palais Liechtenstein in Vienna's Alsergrund district will be showing previously unseen works of art from October.

The reason for the new presentation is the fact that 150 objects are going on a tour to Japan from 3 October to 9 June next year.

As a result they will be replaced by objects that have been more recently restored or indeed that have never been shown at all before from the collection.

The new pictures on display include a look at some of the early German and Dutch painting as well as furniture from Vienna.

The items on display are part of the new public exhibition project "the jewels of art history" that is being shown at least once a month with booking in advance necessary to take part.

Meanwhile the items that have gone on tour to Japan will start their trip at the National Art Center in Tokio before they go to theMuseum of Art in Kochi and then the Kyoto Municpial Museum Station.

The collections director Johann Kräftner said it was the first time that such a big display had been put on outside of Vienna of their artworks.

The collection of the Liechtenstein Royal family is regarded as one of the most important private collections in the world. Their painting collection alone contains more than 1,500 works of art.

The Sovereign Prince of Liechtenstein is the sovereign monarch and head of state of Liechtenstein. The Princely Family of Liechtenstein, after which the sovereign principality was named in 1719, hails from Castle Liechtenstein in Lower Austria, which the family possessed from at least 1140 to the thirteenth century, and from 1807 onward.
