An exhibition on the statesman and art patron Prince Eugene of Savoy-Carignan at Vienna’s Orangerie and Lower Belvedere. This exhibition-portrait was realised with the kind support of UNIQUA ArtCercles.
Prinz Eugen, as he is known in Austria, was a renowned lover and collector of art and left a vast collection of paintings, copper engravings, books and hand writings. He became one of the most influential Austrians of his time when he moved to the country after being rejected by Louis XIV for service in the French army.
As a commander he was a daredevil, willing to sacrifice human lives by the thousands and considered a military genius by his contemporaries, but at the same time a generous patron willing to spend his enormous wealth on his collections, as if his military strategy had a counterpart in his thinking.
