Back to … Eccentricity! 300 years Johann Wenzel Bergl
There is so much to discover!
The 300th anniversary of Johann Wenzel Bergl is an invitation to rediscover the artist’s imagery. An examination of his unjustly forgotten oeuvre may reveal aspects of the painter that go much deeper than a fluffy wilderness for spoiled rococo princesses.
Some of the most important places with works from the master will together commemorate the painter and his oeuvre on the occasion of his anniversary year. It is an event that crosses the boundaries of countries and allows a glimpse of the vast expanse of Central Europe in the baroque period. The main event locations are situated in Lower Austria (Melk Abbey, Basilica of Klein-Mariazell, Schönbrunn Palace, Zwettl Abbey), Vienna and the Czech Republic (Dvůr Králové and Olomouc).
