Other special features are the exquisite Dutch collection – including Rembrandt and Brueghel – beautiful Biedermeier exhibits and valuable musical instruments by Jakob Stainer, among others. The Modern Gallery features works by Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele, Albin Egger-Lienz, Max Weiler, Alfons Walde and Markus Prachensky.
