This event has ended.

Rudolf II (1552-1612) reigned as the Holy Roman Emperor and is known as an unrivalled collector and patron of art. He made major contributions to European artistic culture during the late-16th and early-17 centuries by amassing paintings, writings, artifacts, and flora and fauna from around the globe. This exhibition displays work by Giuseppe Arcimboldo and other artists under Rudolf II’s patronage. Won’t you take a look into the world of art and science contained in his “Chamber of Curiosities”?
