Friedrich Loos, The Rudolfskai in Salzburg

Highlights and hidden treasures from the Residenzgalerie collection.

Around 1800, Salzburg underwent radical changes. The economy was weak, and in 1803, through the Napoleonic Wars, Salzburg lost its political independence. Around the same time, writers, scholars and artists discovered Salzburg and its surroundings as an attractive destination, and in the course of the 19th century they shaped an image of Salzburg that has lasted up to the present day.

The exhibition shows highlights and hidden treasures from the Residenzgalerie collection, dating from between 1800 and 1900. The “Rome of the North” is viewed from afar, close up, and in detail. The journey takes visitors from the town into the countryside, focusing on Lake Zell, Bad Gastein, the Salzkammergut, neighbouring Berchtesgaden, and distinctive mountains such as Grossglockner, Untersberg and Watzmann.

The presentation is rounded off with works by Salzburg artist Wolfgang Richter, who has specialised for over 40 years in diverse aspects of Salzburg and its surroundings, as well as historical postcards from the collection of Wolfgang Tauderer, illustrating the motifs portrayed by 19th century artists.
