Artistic Rivalry

In the autumn of 2022, we are hosting an important exhibition that looks at duels and duets throughout art history. The often intense rivalry between painters and sculptors has a long history, and some of the best-known works from the Renaissance and the Baroque were created in the context of an artistic competition. Artists did not merely compete with each other but also with celebrated historical models, and often their patrons too vied with each other through their commissions.
Competition between artists jostling for prestigious commissions at times degenerated into a climate of aggression, jealousy, and hate that saw them dabbling in intrigue or engaging in fights or even poisonings. Conversely, there are also projects that grew out of artists collaborating with each other.

The exhibition examines numerous artistic confrontations from classical antiquity, the Renaissance, and the Baroque, reuniting and juxtaposing for the first time artworks created in the context of competitions. Many of the selected paintings and sculptures have never been on show in Austria before.
