The Art of Personal Enlightenment
Rudolf II’s Kunstkammer
Building a website “microcosm” that would house both the Prague Collection and the Vienna Collection. Giving the user the possibility to experience the breath of Rudolf’s collection in one singular space.
The Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II, described by his contemporaries as “the greatest art patron in the world”, fostered an art collection in his life that remains unparalleled and would serve as the forbearer of the modern museum. The so called Kunstkammer or cabinet of curiosities was the embodiment of Rudolf’s obsession for enlightenment. He sought to create a microcosm that represented the entire world.
