The Fitzwilliam Museum
The Cabinet of Curiosity, or Kunstkammer, reached its zenith at the Imperial Court in Vienna of the Hapsburg Empire. Small exquisite works of art were created with no practical purpose, but purely to delight the eye, enchant the senses and inspire the mind. This book accompanies the exhibition of over sixty masterpieces loaned to the Fitzwilliam by the Kunsthistorisches museum in Vienna, arguably the most spectacular and important collection of its kind in the world.
