German-speaking lands became major creative hubs, with both secular and religious authorities commissioning high-profile projects carried out by the greatest masters of German and Austrian Baroque and Rococo.

The thousand-year-old city of Salzburg was one of the period’s largest construction sites. The city’s metamorphosis, instigated by successive prince-archbishops, was completed in 1803. The music capital that gave the world Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart also gained renown for its architecture, painting and sculpture—so much so that it was often referred to as the Rome of the North.

The exhibition showcases some 80 works, including drawings, paintings and sculptures on special loan from Salzburg’s various museums: the Salzburg Museum, the Residenzgalerie, St. Peter’s Abbey, as well as several other religious buildings. Visitors are given an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the Baroque and Rococo that developed in Salzburg, Austria and Southern Germany.
