Virtual Middle Ages. A New Look at Old Art
Discover the Belvedere's former Medieval Study Collection on a virtual tour: In 2020, the presentation that was previously on display in the Palace Stables at the Lower Belvedere was digitally scanned and transformed into an interactive 3-D showroom. Visitors to this online resource are invited to explore the secrets and anecdotes of a study collection whose earliest works date to the 1200s. Selected works are presented, explained, and further illustrated.
The Belvedere developed this project in 2020 in collaboration with BEKO Engineering & Informatik GmbH and students from the Institute of Art History at the University of Vienna. In multilayered documentation and videos, they deciphered the works of often anonymous artists, including the Master of the Legend Scenes and the Master of the St. Vitus Legend.
