Special guided tour “300 Years of Johann Wenzel Bergl – the Baroque Longing for the Exotic“
As part of Melk abbey’s summer concerts in 2019 Dr. Andreas Gamerith introduces Johann Wenzel Bergl’s imagery in the garden pavilion on the occasion of the artist’s 300th birthday.
Why do the exotic mural paintings continue to exert a special fascination today? Who were the artist’s commissioners and whose pictorial dreams did he fulfill? An evening which, with the help of words and music, provides an insight into Bergl’s Baroque delight in telling stories.
