Photographer's Note

The Upper Belvedere was built in 1720-1723, originally intended simply to provide a suitable end to the main garden axis. Maria Theresa first named the building "Belvedere". Under the Habsburgs it was further extended. Since 1775, the Belvedere has housed the imperial picture gallery on behalf of Joseph II, and in 1806 the collection of Ambras Palace was moved to the Lower Belvedere as well. Both were transferred to the Museum of Art History in 1890. Since World War I, the Austrian Gallery museum resides in the Belvedere.
