Schloß Klessheim, a baroque palace near Salzburg designed by Austrian architect Johann Bernard Fischer von Erlach in 1700 for Prince-Archbishop Johann Ernest von Thun. It was originally named 'Lustschloss Favorita', a title mentioned on the text beneath the image. The palace became summer residence for the Archbishops of Salzburg, but was not completed until 1732 (after this print was made), by which time the original design had been scaled down. The twin structures in the foreground of this print appear never to have been built. Since 1993 the palace has been the Salzburg Casino.

Engraving with very large margins, platemark 300 x 430mm (11¾ x 17"). Text in French; ingrained dirt in title area. Foxing.
Austrian architect Johann Bernard Fischer von Erlach's first plan for the famous palace of Schönbrun in Vienna. It has been claimed that the audacious 'mega-Versailles' envisaged here, with the palace on the crest of a hill and claiming improbably to offer view of 'the borders of Hungary', were 'intended to display the "universal claim to power" of the Habsburg dynasty, but never seriously considered as a concrete architectural project'. The palace was eventually built at the bottom of the hill, rather than the top as shown here, along with other adjustments.

The Imperial Stables in Vienna, designed by Austrian architect Johann Bernard Fischer von Erlach and inspired by the Emperor Nero's 'Domus Aurea'. The building included stables for six hundred horses, room for two hundred state coaches, and an amphitheatre for public displays, and a horse pond. The stables were severely damaged during the French Occupation of Vienna in the Napoleonic Wars, after which they were renovated and expanded. After the stables became redundant in the twentieth century, the site was used for trade fairs before recently becoming 'MuseumsQuartier Wien', an arts centre including several museums, galleries and other cultural institutions. In the background are the Vienna districts of Laimgrube and St. Ulrich Plate from Fischer's 'Entwurf einer historischen Architektur' ('Outline of Historical Architecture', first published 1721) , the first comparative architecture of all periods and nations.
