The Collection encompasses the history of European sculpture until the 19th century. It shelters among its 600 items such jewels as Leonardo’s equestrian statuette and the Man of Sorrows by Verrocchio. The Renaissance and Baroque small bronzes also deserve reputation. The German, Netherlandish and French Middle Ages are well represented by various works, like Beautiful Madonnas from the 14th century and wooden sculptures stemming from the Late Medieval Riemenschneider workshop. Donner and Messerschmidt represent Austrian Baroque art, the brightest period of sculpture in the region, with a number of fine works. The permanent exhibition of the collection is expected to be opened at the first half of 2013.
