With outstanding works by Dürer, Tintoretto, Sofonisba, Cellini, Rubens, Borromini and many more, the cultural autumn in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is launched. At the centre of the exhibition is the competition among the artists themselves, but also with famous models, above all Michelangelo. Numerous artistic confrontations from antiquity to the time around 1800 are traced and rival works are juxtaposed. Many of the selected paintings and sculptures will be on show in Austria for the first time - including numerous works that were intended to be compared with each other from the very beginning in the spirit of the artists' competition. The exhibition invites you to become part of the jury yourself and to vote for your personal favourite at various stations.
