During spring of 2006 the municipality of Schwarzenberg conceived the project of building the Angelika Kauffmann Museum in the old Kleberhaus, where since 1928 the local history museum of Schwarzenberg is located. After examining the wooden construction and walls of the old Kleberhaus they found the original house (front part) dates from 1556, the extension has been built in 1793. It became a real challenge for the architect to design a new exposition space with respect to this monumental construction. The result is a true balance between old and new: a fresh wooden interior placed inside as a room on its own, where old and new meet visibly and physically. The Painter Angelika Kauffmann (1741 to 1807) is known world-wide for her late baroque and classicistic Portraits and Paintings. Although Angelika Kauffmann lived in London, Venice and Rome, the idyllic town of Schwarzenberg in the Bregenzerwald, however, remained her adopted home in her lifetime.

Marking the 200th anniversary of her death, the re-furbished Angelika-Kauffmann Museum in Schwarzenberg and the Vorarlberg State Museum are staging a major Angelika-Kauffmann exhibition from 14 June to 5 November 2007 under the heading “A Lady of Amazing Talent“. Afterwards the museum in Schwarzenberg will stay (limitedly) open, showing works and live of Angelika.

You won't immediately think so, when approaching the museum, but it is definitely worth visiting and discovering the beautiful interior! Sorry, taking pictures from the interior was because of the special exhibition not allowed...
