Angelika Kauffmann Museum in Schwarzenberg

Angelika Kauffmann - Schwarzenberg, her homeland

Traditional museum in Vorarlberg, Austria

Residence Rom

A summer exhibition from 1 May - 25 October 2015, titled "Angelika Kaufmann. Residece Rom" is about her time in Rom.

Life and early works

Schwarzenberg was the chosen home of Angelika Kauffmann (1741-1807). Probably the most famous of the classicist painters, she was born in Switzerland and grew up in Como. A child prodigy in drawing, she was taught and encouraged from an early age by her father, who came from Schwarzenberg. At that time there was no normal school education for girls.

After the death of her mother, Angelika Kaufmann moved to Schwarzenberg with her father. They were both involved in the renovation work on the church in Schwarzenberg, where she also painted the majority of her early works. They can now be viewed together for the first time in this exhibition in the Angelika Kauffmann Museum.

Angelika Kauffmann Research Project – AKRP

The goal of the Angelika Kaufmann Research Project is to draw up an overall picture of the life and work of the artist with regard to the places where she worked and the art and culture of her time. The results of the research are to be made available to a broad public by means of analogue and digital media.
