On the occasion of Arnulf Rainer’s 90th birthday, the Albertina Museum is presenting a selection of his works from its extensive holdings. The focus here is above all on early overpaintings and crosses, works from Rainer’s large group of Face Farces (of which the Albertina Museum is home to several particularly central and important examples), and a series of equally impressive “veiled pictures”. Five years ago, the Albertina Museum already honored Arnulf Rainer with a large retrospective in celebration of his 85th birthday, testimony to the great esteem in which this internationally renowned Austrian artist is held.
