BAROQUE HALL

Schlossmuseum Linz

PERMANENT EXHIBITION

The hall, which also hosts concerts and events, combines evidence of Catholic piety in the Baroque period. The works primarily coming from churches have been combined to an extent in altar ensembles. They provide an overview of the development of the Baroque from Spindler and Zürn, to Schwanthaler, Guggenbichler and Altomonte to Kremser Schmidt.

In addition to Christ and Mary the focus is above all on the saints, for example the virgins Catherine and Barbara, Joseph with the Christ Child, Saint Christopher the Giant and John of Nepomuk in repose in a tomb. The tomb sculpture of Baron Khevenhüller, the large Lenten veil, the wax altar, the magnificent processional poles and the ecclesiastical equipment and vestments presented in display cabinets and drawers illustrate various aspects of the liturgy of the Catholic Counter-Reformation.
