The permanent collection of the Salzburg Residenzgalerie consists of major works of art from four centuries. These will be exhibited in a comprehensive presentation marking the publication in July 2010 of a two-volume catalogue.
A particularly fine focal point is part of the old Austrian Count Czernin collection, acquired in 1980 by the Province of Salzburg, and one of the Province's most valuable art treasures. This enables Salzburg to display masterpieces from the golden age of Dutch 17th-century painting, by artists including Rembrandt, Paulus Potter, Jan van Goyen, Aelbert Cuyp, Jakob Isaacksz. van Ruisdael, Salomon Ruysdael, Jan Davidsz. Heem, Cornelis de Heem, Peter Paul Rubens.
Italian, French and Austrian baroque painters such as Luca Giordano, Guercino, Franz Anton Maulbertsch, Paul Troger, François Boucher and Hubert Robert lead the viewer into a world of high drama, life lived to the full, ascetic spirituality and erotic courtliness.
The collection is rounded off with works by 19th-century Austrian masters including Friedrich Amerling, Josef Danhauser, Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, and Hans Makart, who was born in the Salzburg Residenz in 1840.
