Pinke Blume mit Text "Sag's durch die Blume"

On the occasion of the exhibition "Of Gardens and People. Designed Nature, Art and Landscape Architecture" starting in March 2023, we would like to invite you to sponsor a historical depiction of flowers from the imperial collections. 

The enchanting watercolours by the great court botanical painter Matthias Schmutzer include around 1.300 different plant species and were commissioned by Emperor Franz II/I (1768-1835).

Help save these unique sumptuous flowers from wilting. By becoming a sponsor, you can support the Austrian National Library in the restoration and conservation of these and many other unique objects. Give the gift of the everlasting splendour of these blossoms to a special person. Sponsorships are gifts for eternity. Whether for birthdays, weddings or anniversaries, there is a suitable work for every occasion in the collections of the Austrian National Library.

For a donation of 500 Euros
•    you will be forever linked to your chosen flower watercolour,
•    you will receive a sponsorship certificate with the name you have chosen and the title of your sponsored work,
•    a bookplate will be attached to the work, documenting the personal, lifelong relationship.
Your donation is once only, and may be tax-deductible.

All flower views and the enquiry form can be found by clicking on the following picture:

We will be happy to advise you on choosing a work to sponsor or on finding a specific flower image.
